Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring session, part of PHP: Managing Persistent Sessions.
- Sessions are enabled by default in PHP,…but there are some 30 configuration directives…that lets you fine tune how they work.…I don't intend to cover every single directive,…but we'll focus on the most important,…starting with the basic defaults.…Session.auto_start controls whether a session…starts automatically for every request.…It defaults to 0, which means it's disabled.…This is more flexible because starting…a session automatically, prevents you from changing…other session settings on individual pages.…
