    Well your confusing COOKIE and SESSION.

    unset() destroys the specified variables.

    session_destroy() destroys all of the data associated with the current session. It does not unset any of the global variables associated with the session, or unset the session cookie. To use the session variables again, session_start() has to be called.

    In order to kill the session altogether, like to log the user out, the session id must also be unset. If a cookie is used to propagate the session id (default behavior), then the session cookie must be deleted. setcookie() may be used for that.
    Rowsdower! has accused me of having mental problems, and the administrator allowed it. What a great forum huh?
