Hey guys,
on my domain I set
$_SESSION['name'] = $rows['name'];

So now how can I transmitt the Session to the subdomain? I found no helping/working entry on google and I have no plan how to do this :S

Edit:
The domain and the subdomain are on the same server, for example: www.just.com and test.just.com

The session itself has little to do with your domains.
1) The session is identified by a cookie with the session id (or passed in the url).
2) The cookie has to do with domains: you can make a cookie to be accessible in subdomains, but for that you will probably need to modify a php ini setting (session.cookie_domain)
3) And now let's suppose that the subdomain is hosted on the same server, and you don't need to share session data between hosts - you still have to be careful not to override gathered session.
