Session variable problem

P: n/a
Hi

I am having a problem with session vars being propagated between pages
on this site:
http://www.meettheancestors.com/sessiontest/index.php
If you enter any user id and password and click Log In (no actual
validation is performed), and then move around the other pages and/or
keep refreshing the pages it will eventually display something that is
incorrect i.e. saying your logged in when you aren't or vice versa.
The exact same code here http://ccgi.gnosis.free-online.co.uk/index.php
works fine implying a problem with the first PHP installation.
Here is the code for the 3 files:
=========== index.php =============
<?php
session_start();
if (isset($_POST['userid']) && isset($_POST['password'])) {
// if the user has just tried to log in
$userid = $_POST['userid'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
//assume valid login so set session var
$_SESSION['loggedinusername'] = $userid;
}
?>
<html>
<body>
<h1>Home page</h1>
<?
if (isset($_SESSION['loggedinusername'])) {
echo 'You are logged in as: '.$_SESSION['loggedinusername'].' <br /
>';
echo '<a href="logout.php">Log out</a><br />';
} else {
if (isset($userid)) {
// if they've tried and failed to log in
echo 'Could not log you in.<br />';
} else {
// they have not tried to log in yet or have logged out
echo 'You are not logged in.<br />';
}

// provide form to log in
echo '<form method="post" action="index.php">';
echo '<table>';
echo '<tr><td>Userid:</td>';
echo '<td><input type="text" name="userid"></td></tr>';
echo '<tr><td>Password:</td>';
echo '<td><input type="password" name="password"></td></tr>';
echo '<tr><td colspan="2" align="center">';
echo '<input type="submit" value="Log in"></td></tr>';
echo '</table></form>';
}
?>
<br />
<a href="members_only.php">Members section</a>
</body>
</html>

=========== members_only.php =============
<?php
session_start();
echo '<h1>Members only</h1>';
// check session variable
if (isset($_SESSION['loggedinusername'])) {
echo '<p>You are logged in as '.$_SESSION['loggedinusername'].'</
p>';
echo '<p>Members only content goes here</p>';
} else {
echo '<p>You are not logged in.</p>';
echo '<p>Only logged in members may see this page.</p>';
}

echo '<a href="index.php">Back to main page</a>';
?>

=========== logout.php =============
<?php
session_start();
// store to test if they *were* logged in
$old_user = $_SESSION['loggedinusername'];
unset($_SESSION['loggedinusername']);
session_destroy();
?>
<html>
<body>
<h1>Log out</h1>
<?php
if (!empty($old_user)) {
echo 'Logged out.<br />';
} else {
// if they weren't logged in but came to this page somehow
echo 'You were not logged in, and so have not been logged out.<br /
>';
}
?>
<a href="index.php">Back to main page</a>
</body>
</html>
========================================

Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem or config issue with
the PHP server at http://www.meettheancestors.com/phpinfo.php (which I
have no control over).

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi

I am having a problem with session vars being propagated between pages
on this site:
=========== logout.php =============
<?php
session_start();
// store to test if they *were* logged in
$old_user = $_SESSION['loggedinusername'];
unset($_SESSION['loggedinusername']);
session_destroy();
This may not actualy destroy everything in the session. The example of
killing a session that uses cookies below is from
http://au.php.net/session_destroy

// Unset all of the session variables.
$_SESSION = array();

// If it's desired to kill the session, also delete the session cookie.
// Note: This will destroy the session, and not just the session data!
if (isset($_COOKIE[session_name()])) {
setcookie(session_name(), '', time()-42000, '/');
}

// Finally, destroy the session.
session_destroy();

I don't think it's the answer to your prob though. I'll be very interested
to here what others have to say. There was a previous post a few days ago
about a similar problem.

After doing as you say, going back and forth through the few pages, logging
out and refreshing etc, I *do* beleive that your not destroying the session
and cookie correctly is the source of your problem.

Hi

I am having a problem with session vars being propagated between pages
Ouch,, I have logged in with two different user names, on two occasions.
Having left the form a while to time-out on one, I refreshed and went back
and forth to find that my username changed from the current one to the
previous one in front of my eyes. Though I didn't actualy log out this
time.
Nasty.

Well, I've been able to reproduce exactly what you have described on my
machine. Clearing the cookies etc made no difference. One site
(meettheancestors)works as it should, and one seems to be getting the
session vars confused on the server. From one moment to the other I get
either previously entered username/s or the current one. There appears to
be no actual patern that I can discerne, its virtualy randomly returning
info from another instance of the seesion var.
I can't see how it can't be something to do with the server. It's certainly
nothing to do with the browser, as I'm using (IE6) exclusively.
This is a genuine problem you got here!

Vince,

That's normal if you open two windows in the same browser. Cookies are
site-dependent, not window dependent. Both windows will share the same
cookies, and therefore the same session.

Well, browser (actually cookiejar) dependent... No problem having
different session in entirely different browsers having seperate cookie
storage systems/locations.

But that's not what's happening here offcourse...

Yeah, and followed up by 'Cookies are site-dependent'. I won't be the
one claiming cookies are not site-dependent (setting them from anything
other then a 'site' is quite cumbersome...), 't was just to clarify.

Oh, and now I'm online again & rolling (literally), I have make up for
all the weeks without posting though, so expect some hardly related
side-comments in threads the next few days :P.

The exact same code here http://ccgi.gnosis.free-online.co.uk/index.php
works fine implying a problem with the first PHP installation.
Here is the code for the 3 files:
=========== index.php =============
I only used *one* browser, and only one browser instance, .
I'll describe exactly what I did for the sake of the OP's cred. I open IE6
by clicking the first link. I enter a user name of "vincent" and some
gobblygook password containing non numeric chars. After clicking the
"Login" button a page opens with "Homepage" at the top, which shows as being
the same url, and "You are now logged in" on the line below. Below that
there is a link "Back to main page" which I then click. I get the login
page again, and a line below "Homepage" says "You are not logged in". I
then click the "Login" button again without entering anything into the
inputs. I now get the "Homepage" and the line below reads, "You are logged
in as: vincent". I then click the "Members area" link at the bottom and the
page and [http://www.meettheancestors.com/sess...bers_only.php]
opens with "Members only" at the top, and "You are logged in as vincent"
below that.
Now it gets more interesting. I click the back button and get "You are
logged in as ". I click back and forth between pages and it shows me as
either a blank user name, or "vincent". Clicking the links at the bottom of
the page and thereby going back and forth beween pages, seems to randomly
cycle me through both user names.
If I click the "Logout" button, I get another page
[http://www.meettheancestors.com/sessiontest/logout.php] "You were not
logged in, and so have not been logged out." appears. If I click back
buttons, or the links themselves, whatever, it cycles me through either
username, and when I log out it doesn't always actualy log out some times.
Hitting the members area link after logging out sometimes takes me to that
page with either of the two usernames, and sometimes not.
H o w e v e r, the second link the OP gives does not do #any# of this weird
stuff. It just works as one would expect it to. The pages look identical,
and according to the OP they are the same code.
This looks very similar to what a previous poster described on 18/04/07 in
this forum.
There is quite apparently a serious issue here IMHO.

Vince,

OK, two possibilities. You had two windows open from the same browser
(I never said you had two browser open) or you don't clear cookies when
you close your browser.

Either one will explain the symptoms you describe and is normal operation.

Hmm, well, only one browser, and only one window.
I did try a test on this last night after clearing cookies, but to be honest
can't remember how things went then as it was getting very late.
However, there is no doubt that the two different url's played the game
entirely differently. and if the OP is not telling fibs, the code is the
same on both.
I'll have another go, clearing cookies as I go ;)
Thanks for the reply,

The first url definately looses the login info after cycling the pages a few
times , but the other doesn't. However, if you keep clicking, you're
suddenly logged in again without entering any loggin info whatsoever, and
then, your not, and then you are again etc etc.
If I clear cookies, same thing happens, but I should mention that I don't
restart the browser immediately after doing that
I won't try anything else again at his point, my head has turned to mush,
and I have things I must attend to. However, there is certainly no doubt
the two url's behave entirely differently. the first does things that
surprise me constantly, but the second behaves exactly as I would expect.
No doubt I don't have the experience to be too dogmatic about my
observations, but I can see why the OP considers he has a genuine problem.
Regards,
Vince

I recreated the OP's site on my machine using :localhost, and it behaves as
the second url does. It does not tell me I'm not logged out when I go to
the "members area" sometimes/often as the first url does.
Clicking away here on my machine does not reproduce the first url's
behaviour not matter how many times I cycle through the pages.
Very strange IMHO.

Yep, I had more time and was able to duplicate it here, also. Looking
at the headers, the session id is being sent each time. So it's
something in the op's code.

That's a possibility - it sure looks close. I wonder what version
they're running? Some hosts only upgrade once a decade, and only then
if forced :-)

It is quite possible I beleive that if this turns out to be the above bug it
was also what was causing loss of, and erroneous, data described in a
previous post on 04/18/07. although he [that poster] seemed to believe his
code behaved differently on different machines it's very possible that, as
it is quite random in nature, he hadn't tested long enough to nail it down
to the server.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this further. Not that it's my
problem, but my continuous pursuit of this could have easily been ignored as

Oh, you got your skateboard back from the shop? :-)
Tssk, wish it was...

Let's just say there's one half of the raingutters on the third floor
roof left to clean. _after_ I buy a better ladder :P

The versions he was using are:
meettheancestors 4.3.2;
gnosis.free-online 4.3.10;
testing server 4.3.10

So the one that is behaving strangely is 4.3.2;

Hi guys,

Thanks very much for all your efforts. Feels like we're making some
progress at last.
Is it possible to establish exactly what version this bug was fixed
in?

Thanks

The bug report [http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=18404] indicates v4.3.2,
however, I don't think this was the last build prior to October 2002, which
is the time given as having been resolved.
I would be quite astonished if v4.3.2 is not one of the buggy builds.
Perhaps Zen may be able to give more info.
