Bug #5396 new vars can't be added to session, existing vars values can't be changed
Submitted: 2000-07-06 11:48 UTC Modified: 2000-07-27 23:13 UTC
From: nepolon at worlddomination dot net Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Session related
PHP Version: 4.0.1pl2 OS: Linux 2.x
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2000-07-06 11:48 UTC] nepolon at worlddomination dot net
to recreate:
1. create a session with some arbitrary number of session variables
2. Header("Location: someotherurl.php")
Now working in someotherurl.php ...
3. session_start() to re-scope the session variables for use in this page
4. attempt to change value of one of those existing session variables
5. attempt to session_register("some_new_variable")
6. beat your head against the keyboard in frustration :)

using a stock php.ini file

configure line = ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-config-file-path=/usr/ --enable-trans-sid --enable-wddx
[I probably should have added the --enable-mysql portion to the config line, but MySQL is working for now...]

looked for this issue in existing bug database but did not locate anything matching.  apologies if user-error caused duplication of bug report.

it is possible that something elusive or subtle that I did or did not do contributed to this behavior.  please feel free to contact me if you cannot recreate this issue.

Very strange, it should work. What session setting are you using?
