I have made a custom module which uses the customer session, but its strange, on live site its not returning customer data.
I have tried following methods:
$sessCustomer = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session', array('name' => 'frontend')); echo '<pre>';print_r($sessCustomer->getCustomer()->getData()); echo '</pre>';exit;
Array ( [website_id] => 1 )
If I print the customer session:
array( [_session_validator_data] => Array ( [remote_addr] => <MY IP> [http_via] => [http_x_forwarded_for] => <MY IP> [http_user_agent] => Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0 ) [session_hosts] => Array ( [bestevalue.info] => 1 ) [messages] => Mage_Core_Model_Message_Collection Object ( [_messages:protected] => Array ( ) [_lastAddedMessage:protected] => ) [id] => )
I am logged in, can see the customer dashboard with customer info on it but not able to use that session in my custom module.
Please guide me how to fix this.
I have checked in
/app/etc/local.xml that session type is file
So is there different method of extracting session info with PHP? What am I doing wrong?
i have used router as well to make pretty url
public function match(Zend_Controller_Request_Http $request)
on start of this action i placed
Mage::getSingleton('core/session', array('name' => 'frontend'));
but still not working with router without one it is working for example directly accessing the action :
it works but not with router. any thoughts? thanks,
