Unset will destroy a particular session variable whereas session_destroy() will destroy all the session data for that user. Now use them accordingly.

unset($_SESSION['name']); // will delete just the name data
session_destroy(); // will delete ALL data associated with that user.

I have the following (below) session code at the top of each page.. The 'print_r' (development feature only) confirms that on one particular page I do log out as the session var = (). but, on testing that page via the URL I still get to see the page and all its contents - session var() -.. the page has the following session_start, DOCTYPE Info then containing meta info

error_reporting (E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);
$userid = $_SESSION['userid'];
$username = $_SESSION['username'];

I'm having a problem getting my objects out of the $SESSION variable. I am storing an ordinal array of associate arrays where one of the associate array elements is an object. Unfortunately, when I pull it back out, the object is "broken" with "__PHP_Incomplete_Class" errors.

From what I can read this has something to do with 'serialization' - i.e., the emerging object must be unserialized ( ). However, I can't get it to work.

Any tips on how that is done, or what I should do instead?

This program is being developed on a testing server that can then be put on a production server.

Here are my server specs:
Apache Version : 2.2.17
PHP Version : 5.3.3
MySQL Version : 5.5.8
