sessionid undefined

On my confrim page, I am running into an issue where my sessionid is undefined. I dump the session variables to the page and sure enough...it is not there. Previously, it had been working fine. So something I did broke it somewhere. I am just not sure where. I believe this variable is the [session id] variable that is set in both the orders and order details dbs to link the two together. I believe the syntax is something like...cart_name_xxxxxxxxxxxx.

So where is this variable set so I can fix this and get my cart working again?

Zipped confirm page is attached minus login info to authorize.net

ok...I mis-spoke earlier. My sessionid issue is not fixed. I tried re-running through a transaction and ran into the same issue as before. If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it.

Ecart makes use of the session id for the internal id of the cart. If this value is not set then you will have issues with the checkout and the cart in general. If you make a php info page you should be able to see this value. An info page is any php page with this line of code in it:

php:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>



When you view this page look for the this setting:
_REQUEST["PHPSESSID"]
or
_COOKIE["PHPSESSID"]

The session id should be available on the page anytime after session_start() is called. You can also generate a session id with the session_regenerate_id() function. You can add a check to see if the session id exists and if not start the session and generate a new id like this:

<?php if(!session_id()) session_start();
if(!session_id()) session_regenerate_id();?>

As for the order not being there what value do you see and what is the code that is referenced for this?

First thing...I am building this page in ColdFusion. So the php info will not help.

As for the orderid...here is the line of code from the checkout_success.cfm page...

<h2>Order Receipt</h2><h3 class="eCart_OrderHeaderInfo">Order number: #Session.resumeCart_OrderID#</h3>

resumecart is the name of my eCart object.

Thanks for pointing out the CF, that changes things a bit. Do you have your application.cfm page in the root of your site with the session management enabled? This is the key to making use of sessions in CF. If the sessions are not working correctly you will have issues like this.

The order id should be set to either the session id or the id of from the orders table where the order was inserted. Post back with your confirm page minus any sensitive details so we can look into the order id variable further.
