Full Version: Session start is deleting my data
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
in order to add an item to the session I am using
session()->start();
and then 
session()->set('foo', 'bar');
and the data is stored in the db


but when I what to read the session items when I do a 
session()->get();
it is empty but I can see the "foo" item in the database


the moment I do a 
session()->start();
all data gets overwritten

how can I read the session data without running the start() function that clears my old data?

and how do I store a new item in the session without using start() because then I loose again the session items!

Thank you in advance
