How to use session


I have the last stable version of codeigniter and try to use session. If someone is not authentified, I display the identification form. Something very classic but...

My session works but only in the same page as soon as I change the page I loose it.

Here is an example
public function __construct()
    // on controle ici si une session utilisateur existe

        echo "session ok!!!".$this->session->userapp;
    $userapp = $this->session->userdata('userapp');

    //$userapp = $_SESSION['userapp1'];
    echo 'userapp '.$userapp;
    /*if($userapp == false || $userapp  ==  NULL || empty($userapp )){
$url = site_url('/login');
    echo '<br/><a href='.$url.'>'.$url.'</a>';


it is always empty

and here is my login
function logincheck(){
    echo '<br/>session.. '.$this->session->userapp;
    $uscode = $this->input->post('identifiant');
    $erreur = 0;
    if ($data['r'] = $this->user_model->get_1userpercode($uscode)){
        if ($data['r']['uspass'] == md5($this->input->post('mdp'))) {
            $this->session->set_userdata('userapp', $data['r']['uscode']);
            //$_SESSION['userapp1'] = $data['r']['uscode'];
            echo "session ok!".$this->session->userdata('userapp');
            echo '<br/>session '.$this->session->userapp;
            $erreur = 1;
        $erreur = 1;

On this login page, my session is ok I can see the user

What should I do to use session

On the manual I read

Open the application/config/config.php file with a text editor and set your base URL. If you intend to use encryption or sessions, set your encryption key.

what does that means ? I want to use session what shall I do ? shall I set an encryption key ? How ?

I must add information

On local session works well

On my host (dreamhost) it doesn't work. Each time I refresh my screen I have a new session.

I tryed with php session not CI session and it works. I had php7 it didn't work I change to php56 and it is the same. I will use classic php session if I don't find any solution

No finaly with normal session it does not work. My session is lost. I cannot use session I don't know why. My project is locked. The only solution is to find an other host that keep session. I cannot make authentification ????

Do you have an idea ? I am completely lost

When you change page, do you go from http://www to http://, if so that could be a reason why your session is lost.

if session does not work how to create an authentification system ? With cookies ????

Autoload the session library and read about sessions in the CodeIgniter Users Guide.
What did you Try? What did you Get? What did you Expect?

Joined the CodeIgniter Community in 2009.          ( Skype: insitfx )

I red the documentation and follow it. It works localhost but as soon as I install on the production serveur. The session does not stay the same each time I refresh I have a new session.

What do you mean my autoload ?

I have this in my code


InsiteFX means in /config/autoload.php

how to do it. I want to go forward. 2 weeks now 3 weeks and I cannot use session in my productive server

Looks to me like you reset the session everytime. Best is to set only once using if set checker.

Set the session here
