How to access info stored in session array?

JL.’s Question:

Given the following code:


$cart = $_SESSION['cart'];


I can then see what I want to access:

Array ( [153c740f526f2fa8aac9e1ddfdce2716] => Array ( [deal_id] => 38 [variation_id] => [variation] => [quantity] => 6 [data] =>……

There is still more but that is the basics…

What I want to be able to do is get and set the quantity:

So I’ve tried:

$cart = $_SESSION['cart'];

for ($i = 0 ; $i < count($cart) ; $i ++)
    echo "The session variable you want" . $_SESSION['cart'][$i]['deal_id'];
    echo "<br>";


But there is no output, what am I doing wrong?

You will simplify things by using foreach loop

foreach ($_SESSION['cart'] as $k => $data) {
    echo "The session variable you want" . $data['deal_id'];
    echo "<br>";
    $_SESSION['cart'][$k] = "new Value";
