How use PHP sessions in cPanel Print

  • 0

To use PHP sessions in cPanel, you can follow these steps:

Log in to your cPanel account and navigate to the "File Manager" section.

Navigate to the directory where you want to store your session files. This can be a subdirectory of your website's document root, such as "/public_html/sessions".

Create a new PHP file in this directory with the following code:


<?php
session_save_path('/path/to/sessions');
session_start();
$_SESSION['test'] = 'Hello World';
echo $_SESSION['test'];
?>
Replace "/path/to/sessions" with the absolute path to the directory where you want to store your session files.

Save the file and navigate to it in your web browser. You should see the message "Hello World" displayed on the page.
This code initializes a PHP session, sets a test variable in the session, and displays the value of that variable on the page. The session_save_path() function sets the directory where session files will be stored.

Note that you will need to ensure that the directory where you are storing session files has proper write permissions set to allow PHP to create and modify session files.

You can also configure the session settings in your PHP configuration file (php.ini) to adjust the session timeout, cookie parameters, and other settings. You can access your php.ini file through the "Select PHP Version" option in cPanel.
