session variable isn't being set

session variable isn't being set

I have a login page, members_LogIn.php, which uses security assist. I have set it up so that it captures memberID as a session variable. All of the redirects work, but when I try to output the member id session variable on the login success page, it is blank.

Here is the code on the login page:

$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $nwbuyers,
"database" => $database_nwbuyers,
"tableName" => "members",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"username".$WA_Auth_Separator."password"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:"") ."".$WA_Auth_Separator."".((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"text".$WA_Auth_Separator."text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"memberID"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"memberID"),
"successRedirect" => "membersIndex.php",
"failRedirect" => "members_EmailPW.php",
"gotoPreviousURL" => TRUE,
"keepQueryString" => TRUE

on the success page, add the following at line 1:

<?php @session_start(); ?>
