how to fix an active php session was detected

Firstly, You need to find out which plugins are causing these errors.

Except for the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin, deactivate all the plugins.

In my case, an active PHP session was detected caused by Unyson.


Then open the file or download it. It should be at 231 lines.

					if ( !session_id() ) {

Now place this following code ⬇ to the Hooks.php by copying from here. 

					if ( !session_id() ) {
    session_start( [
        'read_and_close' => true,
    ] );

Why this happen

A PHP session began through the session_start() technique. Most of the time, the reason for the above oversights is that plugins or themes that apply the session_start() method misuse PHP sessions.

Before making any HTTPs calls, session_write_close() should be executed to close the session.
