Bummer. That would be easy.

Unfortunately I already know all about this page, nothing works.

What I'm doing is logging in a user with thisL

$_SESSION['user_info'] = Array (
					"status" => "success",
					"user_level" => $user_level,
					"username" => $username,
					"session" => session_id()

Then on the logout page I have this:

// start the customers session

	$_SESSION = Array ();

	header("Location: {$_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"]}");

Both pages have session_start(); at the top. I removed some the logic
and the comments from the login page but I copy and pasted verbatim the
logout page. Do you see anything wrong with this?
