PHP Session Decoder

Our session decode tool will decode session files from PHP, useful for debugging or checking customers sessions. Paste the session file data or upload your session file (coming soon) below and click “Decode” to be given a breakdown of the array.

PHP stores session files in ‘/tmp/’ by default, these session files are specially packed into a file using serialization so that PHP can unpack them later into the $_SESSION variable. However a simple un-serialize is not possible since some of the variables are not serialized into the file and are instead separated using the ‘|’ (pipe) ASCII character.
