    session isnt getting destroyed

    PHP Code:
    $errorMsg "";
    session_start();
    setcookie("id"''time()-3600*24*730"/");
    setcookie("idx"''time()-3600*24*730"/");
    setcookie("username"''time()-3600*24*730"/");
    setcookie("useremail"''time()-3600*24*730"/");
    setcookie("userpass"''time()-3600*24*730"/");
    setcookie("accounttype"''time()-3600*24*730"/");
    session_destroy();
    sleep(3); 
    if(!isset(
    $_SESSION['id'])){
        
    header("location: index.php");
        exit();
    } else {
        
    $errorMsg "Logout Error";

    When I try to logout it doesn't let me, it removes the cookies, the but session_destroy doesnt seem to get destroyed and I'm still logged in. The Logout Error message is displaying.

    Hi,

    I am not an expert in php but i am learning php for last 4 months and have practiced many times on session's and cookies. As i have gone through your code i have seen that you are not creating session variable but instead your are creating cookies which cannot be deleted by session_destroy() method. As of this code you don't have any session variable so the condition is not getting satisfied and you are getting Logout error message.

    Instead of setcookies() you must use $_SESSION["id"]=$anyvariable; to get it worked. Hope it will help you. And no doubt i might be wrong but i am sure that i am not.

    Try using unset():

    PHP Code:
    unset($_SESSION);
    session_destroy();

    The unset before the session_destroy fixed the problem, many thanks!
