You can't store that into a session because the object only works while the connection to the MySQL server is open. Once the connection is closed the object stops working.


If you want to store all the results, store it in an array:

$results = $mysqli->query($query);
$data = array();
while($row = $mysqli->fetchAssoc()) {
  $data[] = $row;
$_SESSION['iml'] = $data;

Hello Jomla.


I'm a newbie teaching myself php and MySQL.

I've been looking at session since I started in June 2016.


The way I got to read a database MySQL was:-


$db_host = "localhost"; // $db_host
$db_user = "<database username>"; // $db_user
$db_pass = "<database password>"; // $db_pass
$db_databasename = "<database name>"; // $db_databasename

$conn = new mysqli($db_host, $db_user, $db_pass, $db_databasename);

if(! $conn)
die('Connection Failed'.mysql_error());

$sql = "SELECT Member_id, Fullname, Username, Email, Password, Location, Country, DOB, Gender, Relationship, Photo, Tzone, WebsiteURL, MembershipType, AccountStatus, BusinessAddress, SignupDate, LastVisitDate, is_online, AccountPrivacy, UserContactPrivacy, AutoRenewPass, AutoRenewDate, IP_Address, AccountClosedDate, AccountDeleteDate, Remarks FROM phpbear_registration";

$result = $conn->query($sql);

if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
// output data of each row
while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
if ( $row["Email"] == $user_email) {
if ( $row["Password"] == $user_password) {
switch ($row["AccountStatus"] ) {
case "Suspended":
echo "This account is Suspended.";
header("Refresh:5; url=/index.php");
case "Closed":
echo "This account was closed on:- ". $row["AccountClosedDate"];
header("Refresh:5; url=/index.php");

if ( $row["AccountStatus"] == "Active" or $row["AccountStatus"] == "New") {
// echo "id: " . $row["Member_id"]. " - Name: " . $row["Fullname"]. " " . $row["Email"]. "<br>";
// Get member's data from database
$_SESSION['member_Member_id'] = $row["Member_id"];
$_SESSION['member_Accountname'] = $row["Fullname"];
$_SESSION['member_Username'] = $row["Username"];
$_SESSION['member_Email'] = $row["Email"];
$_SESSION['member_Password'] = $row["Password"];
$_SESSION['member_Location'] = $row["Location"];
$_SESSION['member_Country'] = $row["Country"];
$_SESSION['member_DOB'] = $row["DOB"];
$_SESSION['member_Gender'] = $row["Gender"];
$_SESSION['member_Relationship'] = $row["Relationship"];
$_SESSION['member_Photo'] = $row["Photo"];
$_SESSION['member_Tzone'] = $row["Tzone"];
$_SESSION['member_WebsiteURL'] = $row["WebsiteURL"];
$_SESSION['member_MembershipType'] = $row["MembershipType"];
$_SESSION['member_AccountStatus'] = $row["AccountStatus"];
$_SESSION['member_BusinessAddress'] = $row["BusinessAddress"];
$_SESSION['member_SignupDate'] = $row["SignupDate"];
$_SESSION['member_LastVisitDate'] = $row["LastVisitDate"];
$_SESSION['member_isonline'] = $row["is_online"];
$_SESSION['member_Privacy'] = $row["AccountPrivacy"];
$_SESSION['member_Contact_Privacy'] = $row["UserContactPrivacy"];
$_SESSION['member_AutoRenewPassword'] = $row["AutoRenewPass"];
$_SESSION['member_AutoRenewPasswordDate'] = $row["AutoRenewDate"];
//$_SESSION['member_IPAddress'] = $row["IPAddress"];
/* $_SESSION['member_AccountClosedDate'] = $row["AccountClosedDate"];
$_SESSION['member_AccountDeleteDate'] = $row["AccountDeleteDate"];
$_SESSION['member_Remarks'] = $row["Remarks"]; */
/* $sql = "UPDATE phpbear_registration SET IPAddress='' WHERE Member_id='$userID'";
mysqli_query($conn,$sql); */
/* ------------------------------------------------------------
if ($row["AccountStatus"] = "New") {
$sql = "UPDATE phpbear_registration SET AccountStatus='Active' WHERE Member_id='$_SESSION['member_Member_id']'";
$sql = "UPDATE phpbear_registration SET AccountDeleteDate='--/--/----' WHERE Member_id='$_SESSION['member_Member_id']'";
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- */


I know it's a long winded but at that time I didn't know how else to store the results.

Good Luck.
