I am building a web application which consists of a number of php scripts linking to each other. The general flow is as follows:
loats init.php (require_once, which initialises global variables including $GLOBALS[‘maggot’][‘formToken’] => ‘not set yet’
I then select the Register link which runs register.php
loads loats init.php (require_once) which I assume doesn’t happen because it is already loaded
checks $_POST and processes any data
generates a new formToken and sets the global variable (see above) - this works as I echo the global variable value
output the form
user updates the form and it is submitted back to register.php
HOWEVER - when register.php processes the form data the global variable has been reset to the original value (and so my token check fails). Why would the global variable $GLOBALS[‘maggot’][‘formToken’] be reset to the value in init.php when register.php is reloaded?
I am obviously misunderstanding something about $GLOBALS and/or require_once(). Some help would be much appreciated.
