I hope you're all doing well! I'm facing a little issue with updating session variables in PHP, and I was wondering if anyone could lend me a hand.
So, let me give you a bit of context. I'm currently working on a PHP project where I need to store some user-specific information in session variables. However, I'm having trouble figuring out how to update these variables without losing their previous values.
To give you a clearer picture, let's say I have a session variable called $_SESSION['name'] that initially holds a user's name. Now, at a certain point in my code, I want to update this variable to hold the user's new name, but I don't want to lose the previously stored name.
I've tried different approaches, like using the assignment operator (=) or the array_push() function, but unfortunately, none of them seem to do the trick. The variable just gets overwritten with the new value, erasing the old one.
I was hoping someone here could guide me on the right path and show me how to properly update session variables in PHP without losing their previous values. Any insights or sample code that you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you all in advance for your assistance, looking forward to your responses!
