If you know some values have been saved in the session by another script requested by the same visitor, you can retrieve those values back by using the pre-defined associative array called $_SESSION. The following PHP script shows you how to retrieve values from the session:

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

  $myLogin = $_SESSION["MyLogin"];
  print("Value of MyLogin has been retrieved: ".$myLogin."\n");

  $myColor = $_SESSION["MyColor"];
  print("Value of MyColor has been retrieved: ".$myColor."\n");

  print("</pre></html>\n");
?>

You need to save this script to your Web server as next_page.php. Now visit first_page.php and click the "Next Page" hyper like, you will get:

Value of MyLogin has been retrieved: FYICenter
Value of MyColor has been retrieved: Blue
