When session is turned on, a session will be automatically created for you by the PHP engine. If you want to save any values to the session, you can use the pre-defined associative array called $_SESSION. The following PHP script shows you how to save values to the session:

<?php
  session_start();
  print("<html><pre>");

  $_SESSION["MyLogin"] = "FYICenter";
  print("A value saved in the session named as MyLogin.\n");

  $_SESSION["MyColor"] = "Blue";
  print("A value saved in the session named as MyColor.\n");

  print("Click <a href=next_page.php>Next Page</a>"
    ." to retrieve the values.\n");
  print("</pre></html>\n");
?>

If you save this script to your Web server as first_page.php and visit it with a browser, you will get:

A value saved in the session named as MyLogin.
A value saved in the session named as MyColor.
Click Next Page to retrieve the values.
