I am using Apache 1.3.12 and apache module php4.

Using index.php that registeres a session variable and test.php that displays this variable, the session file does not contain the value of the variable, only the variable name.

[sess_15e149f29b26e2995c2474bbd083589e]:
!my_session_variable|


[index.php]:
<?php

session_start();
$my_session_variable =  "some value";
session_register( "my_session_variable");
echo "my session variable '" . $my_session_variable . "'";
?>
<a href="test.php">test</A>

[test.php]:
<?
session_start();

echo "my session variable '" . $my_session_variable . "'";

phpinfo();

?>

Do you have register_globals turned on?
 [2000-07-13 10:13 UTC] japj at darius dot demon dot nl
ok, I forgot to set register_globals to "On" in the php.ini, but I'm not sure if this is mentioned in the readme/documentation

php.ini comment about register_globals:
; Whether or not to register the EGPCS variables as global
; variables.  You may want to turn this off if you don't want
; to clutter your scripts' global scope with user data.  This makes
; most sense when coupled with track_vars - in which case you can
; access all of the GPC variables through the $HTTP_*_VARS[],
; variables.
