I had problems with the session and found out, that in PHP 5.3 the default value for "session.use_only_cookies" has changed from "0" to "1" although the documentation says: "This setting was added in PHP 4.3.0. Defaults to 1 (enabled) since PHP 6.0."

So until PHP 5.2.x (including 5.2.10) the default value is "0" (as also mentioned in the php.ini for these versions), from PHP 5.3 the default is "1". 

This means:

- The mentioned default value in the table at manual page "session.configuration.php" is wrong, because that's not valid for current stable versions.

- The sentence mentioned above is also wrong - should be "PHP 5.3" instead of "PHP 6.0".

- This change is missing in the PHP 5.3 upgrade guide at

Reproduce code:
not needed

Expected result:
not needed

Thats not the upgrade guide, we don't have an upgrade guide for PHP 5.3 yet, this is however the scratchpad for our upgrade guide, things that needs to be documented in the manual, some of it may already have been documented and others have not yet been ;)

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
