Delete of cookies and of the session-id - PHP Development

Help! I try to delete at the end of the php-session either the cookies or the sessionid (depending on cookies are allowed or not): <?php ini_set('session.use_trans_sid',1); session_start(); unset($_SESSION['PHPSESSID']); setcookie('PHPSESSID',FALSE,0); ?> but it doesn't work. Who can help? Thanks, Matthias...

    Default Delete of cookies and of the session-id

    Help!

    I try to delete at the end of the php-session either the cookies or the
    sessionid (depending on cookies are allowed or not):

    <?php
    ini_set('session.use_trans_sid',1);
    session_start();
    unset($_SESSION['PHPSESSID']);
    setcookie('PHPSESSID',FALSE,0);
    ?>

    but it doesn't work. Who can help?

    Thanks,

    It doesn't work that way, because a new PHPSESSID is created each time you
    call session_start().

    When your goal is to logout a user or something like that, you should unset
    an identifier, e.g. ``loggedin'':

    session_start();
    if ($logout) {
    unset($_SESSION['loggedin']);
    }

    You may delete the session variables using session_destroy.
    If you need a more complex behavior, you may overload the session handler
    to gain full control over session handling.
