session_name

Thursday 22 May 2014 03:50 pm

After some time (hours!) find out that session_name("nameofsession") can't contain spaces, or it keeps spawning a new _SESSION each time you call it. Not good, particularly when the STS uses $siteName as the sesssion name. Have updated the code to str_replace spaces with - (session name can only use a-z0-9 or -).
