View Full Version : Changing global / Predefined variables in PHP

01-10-2008, 06:03 PM

I had my site working earlier in HT Access authentication. This registered the global variable $HTTP_AUTH_USER as the authenticated user on my website.
HOwever, due to changed requirements, I am now using sessions.

What I want to do is change the $HTTP_AUTH_USER to PHPSESSID['ulogin'] instead.

Is there a way to override $HTTP_AUTH_USER on all pages that changes it to PHPSESSID thing instead ?

THe sessionid thing starts once the user logs in using sessions.

Use find/replace?

Could you elaborate a little more please ?

I assume he means using your favorite text editor, replace all occurrences of $HTTP_USER_AUTH with PHPSESSID['ulogin']. Most good editors will have a feature to replace all.
