PHP $_SESSION variables are getting replaced while a new user logs in to Azure App Service (Free:Plan) RRS feed

  • Question

  • In azure app service I am authenticating users using office365, once user logs in I am storing some data in $_SESSION variables. But the problem occurs when multiple users log in to the application.

    For Example: User "A" has logged in to the application and I am storing user-data $_SESSION["username"] = "A" and redirecting to a page, and at the same time User "X" is logging into the application and the user-data $_SESSION["username"] = "X" is replacing the previous $_SESSION["username"] value i.e "A".

    1. In the php.ini session.save_handler => files; session.save_path => /home/site/wwwroot/tmp

    2. This application is hosted as Azure App Service[Linux] with Free ASP.

    3. And I am using PHP Version 7.2.20.
    //Codes to authenticate user and getting user details
    $_SESSION["username"] = "John";
    header("Location: page1.php");

    here once a user named "Doe" is logging in. The Value in $_SESSION["username"] is getting replaced by "Doe";
