Hello Pravesh,
A PHP session variable is used to store information about, or change settings for a user session. Before you can store user information in your PHP session, you must first start up the session. session_start() function is used for start session into PHP page.

To resolve your problem you can try something like following code.
PHP Script Code:


// Start Session


// check session value has been set or not

if(isset ($_SESSION['PageViewUser']))


    // increment counter by 1 if session value is already set

    $_SESSION['PageViewUser'] = $_SESSION['PageViewUser']+ 1 ;




    // if session value not set, then value set by 1 in session variable

    $_SESSION['PageViewUser'] = $_SESSION['PageViewUser']+1 ;

} ?>
