When you type php –ri session in the terminal you get this screen

in index.php we added the  line:

<?php
session_start()
?>

a line above the session.save.handler => files => files points the directory on your file system where the session are stored. in my case “sessions.save_path”  has no value because I am using mamp pro.  So my default folder is /tmp.
