In CodeIgniter, you can retrieve the current session ID using the session_id() function.


Here's an example of how you can retrieve and display the session ID in a view:

1
<p>Session ID: <?php echo session_id(); ?></p>


You can also retrieve the session ID in a controller or model using the same function.

1
$session_id = session_id();


Keep in mind that the session_id() function will only work if a session has already been started. To start a session in CodeIgniter, you can use the session_start() function in your controller.

1
session_start();


Alternatively, you can configure CodeIgniter to automatically start a session whenever a page is loaded by setting the sess_auto_start configuration setting to TRUE in your application's configuration file.

1
$config['sess_auto_start'] = TRUE;

To get the session ID in CodeIgniter, you can use the session_id() function. This function returns the current session ID.


Here's an example of how you can retrieve the session ID in CodeIgniter:

// Load the session library
$this->load->library('session');

// Get the session ID
$session_id = $this->session->session_id();

// Display the session ID
echo "Session ID: " . $session_id;


Note: Make sure you have already loaded the session library before using the session_id() function.
