[nycphp-talk] PHP sessions on IE Mac

Did you try using PHP's cache control directive: session.cache_limiter =
noncache ?

This would set a global cache control policy, but you could be page specific
and use session_cache_limiter(nocache) if you don't want to set it at the
directive level.

Not sure it will work, but it's worth a shot.

I can make a web session expire by using some php's session_destroy()
function.  The purpose of this is so that if you log out and then you hit
the BACK button, you will not be able to see previous data.  This works
great on the PC with IE, MOZILLA, NETSCAPE.

When in the Mac World,  MOZILLA and NETSCAPE handled this the correct way,
but IE and Safari still show you the previous data.

I try unset to remove session variables but still I am able to see the data
on IE and Safari on the Mac.

The actual php site is located on an W2K platform.

The IE on Mac is IE 5.2 for the Mac

Any ideas on how to stop the data from displaying on IE Mac?
