There's a problem with the RegenerateID method - The version_compare() check to allow the passing of the optional paramter for session_regenerate_id() is reversed:

version_compare('5.1.0', phpversion(), '>=')

Means that only users of version 5.1.0 can use session_regenerate_id(true) - E.g. if you're running 5.1.1 the statement will evaluate as false as 5.1.0 is NOT greater than or equal to 5.1.1, see

The statement should be written as:

version_compare(phpversion(), "5.1.0", ">=")

I have fixed this bug and added session lifetime and destroys methods in my own version of this class available at
