losing session after $GoTo redirect

losing session after $GoTo redirect

Whenever I go to an external file that, for example, handles inserting something into the page, or even when I don't go go to an external page, but within the page itself I want to redirect to go to an anchor within the same page, I Lose My Session..... so that the selections and entries made on the form are not maintained. I tried using exit() and session_regenerate_id(true) but it's not working. You may know a lot more about it than I do. Is that something you know the answer to? Thanks.

Can I see an example page. If I had a url with steps to reproduce and ftp access then I could see what is going on. It could be a server configuration issue or an issue with your code on your page, but it is impossible to say without debugging it directly and seeing what exactly happens and why.

Sorry, it's hard to give access to that page. It's dependent on a login session that I can't do at the moment. But it's in the Server Behavior $GoTo redirect line after inserting or deleting and redirecting to the Form page.

$InsertGoTo = "page_g.php#optionaldiv";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $InsertGoTo = $InsertGoTo?rel2abs($InsertGoTo,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$InsertOptQuery->redirect($InsertGoTo);

The fields become blank again when back on the page. The $Session variables are lost. I thought there may be something generic that would be a quick fix. If not, I'll see if I can give access some way. Thank you.

If session variables are actually lost then it might be a bad session_save_path in your php.ini file. But I'm not sure if all sessions are lost or just a particular session variable that might be overwritten. It is kind of like asking a mechanic why your car won't start and showing him the key in the ignition not starting the car without letting him look under the hood.

It only happens on that one page. Not throughout the website. Ok. I'll try to provide more info. Thank so much.

Then it is probably being reset somewhere. I'd have to follow the code to see where.
