confirm page not adding new order, updating existing order

Hi,

I'm using eCart 5.0.1 on CS4, Win 7 64bit.

PHP based web site.

I've come across an issue when making additional orders on a site I'm working on.

If I place an order, everything works correctly and a new order is added to the database. However, if I then make another order, instead of adding a new entry in the database, it simply updates the existing entry with any alterations I may have made to the order.

I've narrowed this down to the confirm.php page. It appears that a new entry isn't being added, even though the fields used for OrderID in both the Store Summary and Store Details SB's having no value associated with their entries in the database to be calling incorrect OrderID's.

At the moment, I'm completely baffled as to why new entries are not being added, and I can only put it down to a session value being used somewhere within the process to store a value for the OrderID.

Any help on this would be MUCH appreciated.

Regards

Paul C

Your suspicions are correct, I believe you are experiencing an issue with the session id being reused on your subsequent orders.

The fix for this would be to either clear the session completely, or you can regenerate a new session id. Both of these should force a new session id to be created and this is usually the unique identifier for the order. There is also the Order ID session variable that is set the first time through the order. You might want to unset this value as well. You can do all this with some code like this on your checkout success or failure page:

php:
<?php

if(!session_id())session_start();
session_regenerate_id();
unset(
$_SESSION['OrderID']);
?>



You should add this to the bottom of the page so it is the last code that runs. Let us know if you continue to have any problems with this.
