User Authentication - log in and log out

The tutorials are not helping and I am in need of help. I do not understand this mysqli server behavior, even though I have used the deprecated server behavior and that was a lot more easier.

1. I have the login but I need to set it with the users being directed to 2 different pages. On my registration form the users choose which type of user they are. One would be a candidate and the other is a company. How do I set this?

2. The logout button does not clear my sessions. I created a logout page. Am I suppose to include session start on all pages including the logout.

Please help...

If you include sample pages I can see what you did wrong.

In terms of having two redirects you may what to apply the login server behavior twice and include a column filter for the user type column where you store whether they are candidates or companies.

Just apply it twice and don't include a failure redirect in the first one, but have a success redirect in both.

The logout server behavior should include the session_start code automatically. You only have to manually add it when referring to session variables from another server behavior on the page. All of the user authentication server behaviors should start the session automatically.

User Authentication - log in and log out

I got the page to redirect to 2 different pages based off the login chosen. Thank you. As for the logout, it does log out but when I right click on the page and choose inspect, under the cookies it shows that the phpsessionid is active. How do I go about making sure that all the sessions are removed, also it adds a session if I put the incorrect password in when a user logs in. It doesn't log in the user it just adds the phpsessionid.

Any help will be appreciated.

You can remove all other session variables by adding code to you logout page like:

php:
<?php

@session_start();
session_destroy();
?>

I am not sure if I am doing this correctly. The phpsession is still there. I have attached my code that is on my logout page. Where would I put it? I added the code at the top and that didn't work. I even added below the logout section and that still didn't work.

You can add it right below the other logout code:

php:
<?php require_once('../webassist/mysqli/authentication.php'); ?>

<?php
if ("" == "") {
  
$LogOut = new WA_MySQLi_Auth();
  
$LogOut->Action "logout";
  
$LogOut->Name "signin";
  
$LogOut->execute();
}

@
session_start();
session_destroy();
?>

<?php include("../partials/header.php"); ?>
<div class="full-content">
    
    <div class="logout">
