Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating a unique key when registering users, part of PHP: Managing Persistent Sessions.
- So you'll need to change the database name…and the user account details…to match your setup, if necessary.…And if your server's running PHP 5.4,…you'll also need to include…the password compat library at this point.…You can download it from the location described in…What you should know before watching this course.…But it's required only for PHP 5.4.…Now that you know what the persistent session handler…and autologin classes do,…it's time to put them to work.…In the Chapter 5 05_01 folder are two other folders.…
The first one, called classes,…contains the final versions of the three classes…that we've been working with…and of the PersistentProperties trait.…If you haven't already done so,…you need to copy these files…to the Foundationphp Sessions folder…in the testing site route.…The other folder is called test.…You need to copy this folder…and then paste it in the testing server route.…And this folder contains a series of files…that we'll be using to test the autologin system.…
So open register.php and load this into a browser.…
