You can't used session_register() because it's outdated

Read this:

http://php.net/manual/en/function.session-register.php

If you are using PHP 5.4.0 then this function is no longer available.

Please update to PHP 5.4.7

If you want still want to used that

Then do this : $_SESSION['username'] = '$username';

My advice right now learn the current code because you will get alot of errors later on and it's getting harder for you to make the code work.

@LastMitch

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Am currently testing Ubuntu 12.10 as my new develop environment. I found some on advice online suggesting one check logs with this particular error (cat /var/log/apache2/error.log). Accordingly; I searched on the PHP Fatal error found in these logs & ended up here. I guess it is to be expected that certain functions etc get deprecated with time, but it can be a hassle finding out the hard way! Once again thanks!

Before assigning any session variables like $_SESSION['username'] = ...
ensure that you have session_start(); at the top of every page.

@diafol

I'm not sure if you are replying to me, but if you are firstly, thank you and rest assured I have session_start(); at the top of pages where required. My problem was just getting caught out by the deprecation of session_register();. Everthing is cool now.

Sure, no problem. As it wasn't in your original code, I thought I'd add it 'just in case'.

Everthing is cool now.

:)

but now how do you check if the session is created?
Example:
on the other pages

    <?php
    session_start();
 //This dosn't work :S
   if(!session_is_registered($myusername)){
    header("location:main_login.php");
    }
    ?>

Hi joshf97,

You set a session variable with:

$_SESSION['myusername'] = "Zagga";

you can check if it's set with:

if(!$_SESSION['myusername']){
...

See the PHP Manual for more info.
