Session Time Length?

Jan 6, 2011

I've only gotten confused about it.  I've read about changing some settings or adding code in my php.ini file but I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to that.  I'm starting the session simply by having session_start(); at the top of each of my pages.  I'm including a copy of my entire php.ini file here so that you can see what I have already.  Can someone please help me to figure out what I would need to do to make my sessions last at least 8 hours? 

Code: [Select]register_globals = off
allow_url_fopen = off

Length Of Time

Jul 31, 2007

I'm building a very simple stats package for a website im doing, currently I hold the

IP Address

Each time someone goes onto a page, then the above details are captured and stored in an sql database.

What I want to do is to store the length of time someone has been on each page, so as well as capturing the "Time", "Date", "URL" & "IP Address", I want to capture "Length" and store this like 00:04:23.

Is it possible to store the length of time someone has been on a page?

Determine Length Of Time To Date

Mar 4, 2007

I'm trying to figure out how many days there are to an annual date (e.g., I need to know whether I'm approaching a yearly invoice date). The approach seems simple, but I've not been able to figure out this 'logic' problem. I assume this task needs to account for the year of the invoice date and today's date. Then it seems as though I just need to determine the number of days between those two dates once the year has been taken out of the equation.

Divide Time Length By 30 Days?

Jan 10, 2010

from the time length 2010-01-09 21:04:06 **to** 2010-02-08 21:04:06. how can I get date + time at each 30 day interval? So I should get

2010-02-09 21:04:06
2010-03-09 21:04:06
2010-04-09 21:04:06
2010-05-08 21:04:06

So everyday, a script will check today's date to see if it matches one of above. If there's a match update all rows added before today.

$point1 = "2010-02-09 21:04:06"
if (date("Y-m-d h:m:s") >= $point1){
mysql_query('UPDATE table SET status='checked' WHERE lastadded < $point1');

Maximum Length Of A Session Variable Value

Apr 7, 2007

Is there a maximum length of a value stored in a session variable?  I have written a basic shopping cart in PHP and am adding the selected products and options to a single session variable (probably not the best idea, but i don't know what else to do) and i wonder if it would be possible that this string gets too long and products are "forgotten"?  I know there is a cut-off length when posting variables from a form using GET, but i am using POST, then combining the data into one (long) string and storing it in

$_SESSION['cartcontent'] = "mylongstringhere|seconditemhere|thirditemhere|fourthitemhere"
I have googled for "PHP Max Length Session Variable" and not found any info about this.

May 22, 2005

My session variables seem to only last for the first page after log in, and disappear on subsequent pages. I tried different things, and finally added session_start() to every page. Is this the correct fix, or will this cause problems down the road and impact session time out?

Session Time

Mar 29, 2001

I have changed the following in my php.ini file

filesession.gc_maxlifetime = 60
session.cookie_lifetime = 60

So in theory all of my sessions should not last longer than 1 minute. But I`m still roaming round on session based pages.

I`m fairly sure my code on these pages is ok:

// Connect to MySQL
$connection=mysql_connect("", "", "");
// Check Login against database
$UserChk=mysql_db_query($dbase,"SELECT * FROM Members Where UserName='$UserName' and Password='$Password'");
$num_rowsUserChk = mysql_num_rows($UserChk);

Is there anything else I`m missing?? Do I need to restart something or other?

Session Time Out

Jul 6, 2005

I activate a session when a script is processed to get results from mysql. And I will save the "total_items" and "last_query" in the session variables when the visitor send the query for the first time, so that when the same query is sent again by the same visitor, the script will modify the query by adding "LIMIT, start, itemsperpage" to only get the needed number of rows from the database.

Jun 13, 2007

I am tracking with a variable in db called 'Logged' and setting it to 1 if a user logged in and setting session at this point as well. If the user logout then it is set to 0. This way I am allowing only one login per user name & Password.

But I have a problem that If the user didn't log out, them the 'Logged' flag is not changed. thus preventing the user logging in again.

Question : How can I know if the user just closed the browser, Or inactive for more than 20min.

Sessions - Two With Same Session ID As The Same Time

Jan 18, 2006

I just had a brainwave. I leave a session cookie on someone's machine so
that I recognise them (with their session ID in the cookie) when they come
back, I also offer them the option to have an email sent to their email
address with a link that sets the session ID to the one in the emailed link
so that they can open their account from another computer.

Now, my question is, can you have two users on different computers be on the
website at the same time with the same session ID?

Session Time Out Too Fast

Jul 23, 2007

I made a simple script with some session variables. When I work in the
application, and when I don't use the application for some time, the
session vars are erased... even when I set the session time out for 4

Here is a part of the code:

$cache_expire = session_cache_expire();
$naam_l = ''

if (isset($_SESSION['a_name'])) $naam_l = $_SESSION['a_name'];

How is it possible that the vars don't work anymore , for example
within 30 min?
Is there maybe a problem in IE6? How can I debug this problem....

Why Is My Session Variable Not Already Set The First Time

Jul 17, 2005

If I run the following PHP script the session variable auth_ok changes to
true resp. false only if I press the button 1 resp. 2 twice.



if (!isset($_SESSION['auth_ok'])) {
$_SESSION['auth_ok'] = false;

echo "Username: " . $_POST['user'] . "<br>";
echo "Password: " . $_POST['pass'] . "<br>";
echo "Button 1: " . $_POST['button1'] . "<br>";
echo "Button 2: " . $_POST['button2'] . "<br>";
echo "Authentication: " . $_SESSION['auth_ok'] . "<br>";

if (isset($_POST['button1'])){
echo "Button 1 has been pressed<br>";
$_SESSION['auth_ok'] = true;

if (isset($_POST['button2'])){
echo "Button 2 has been pressed<br>";
$_SESSION['auth_ok'] = false;

<form name="loginform" method="post" action="mytest.php">
Username: <input type="text" name="user" size="30" maxlength="30"><br>
Passwort: <input type="password" name="pass" size="30"
<input type="submit" name="button1" value="Button 1">
<input type="submit" name="button2" value="Button 2">


The PHP error logs says
[24-Apr-2005 21:48:09] PHP Notice: Undefined index: button1 in
D:WWWphp\_login-sisimytest.php on line 10
[24-Apr-2005 21:48:28] PHP Notice: Undefined index: button2 in
D:WWWphp\_login-sisimytest.php on line 11
depending on the button I pressed.

What's wrong with my PHP script?

Dynamically Set The Expiration Time Of The Session.

Dec 30, 2002

I have a session running through named 'imageminder'. For the administration section, should I use the same session or create a new one called 'imageminder_admin' for example? Im using my own session handlers that save the sessions to a mysql db.

My reasons for creating a different session for the admin section is to make sure it will expire in say 15 minutes, rather than the typical 90 days (or whatever) for the typical session. Secondly, im using simple sessions thoughout my appliction

session_register(); etc

However, what do I do if a user does not support cookies? Lastly, how do I dynamically set the expiration time of the session.
