Man, the IT department at Augsburg College really doesn’t want anything to happen on their servers. You can see in previous postings the functions they have disabled, but I just tried storing data in a PHP session, and unless I set the variable within the current program file the session had no permanence. They must have set session.gc_maxlifetime to ‘0’ and session.gc_probability to ‘100’, meaning sessions can’t be saved. Either that, or they compiled PHP without sessions (using the –disable-session option). Harrumph. I really need to find a host that didn’t cripple PHP when they installed it.
