I hope you're all doing well. I've recently started learning PHP, and I came across the term "session." I was wondering if someone could help me understand what exactly a session is in PHP.
I've heard that sessions are used to store data across multiple pages for a specific user. But I'm not quite sure about the specifics. How does a session work in PHP? When and why would I use sessions? Are there any limitations or best practices I should be aware of?
I would really appreciate it if someone could shed some light on this for me. Any explanations, examples, or references to helpful resources would be fantastic.
Thank you so much in advance for your assistance!
