$_SESSION problem

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I'm having issues getting the $_SESSION variables to work. I'm just learning to use them so I could easily be missing something.

Using this simple code from a tutorial:


$_SESSION['views'] = $_SESSION['views']+ 1;
$_SESSION['views'] = 1;

Refreshing the page doesn't update the counter, as it's recreating the variable each time. Also if I try to pass the variable to another page, it doesn't save either.

Am I missing something here, or is there something on WAMP Server that needs to be configured for it to work?

Make sure your browser has cookies enabled. Sessions should work with no configuration needed, by default WAMP configures PHP to save sessions to C:/wamp/tmp (make sure this folder exists and is not set to read only).

Also you should be going to [localhost] to run your PHP scripts.
