You need to first fetch the result of your query:

$up = $conn->prepare($update);
$up->bindParam(':name', $_POST['name'], FILTER_SANITIZE_SPECIAL_CHARS);
$result = $up->fetch();
$_SESSION['name'] = $result['name'];

The fetch method in your framework might return an object instead of an array. In that case you can access the name property like this:


Either way, you can't use $up to get the name because, as your error says, it's an object of type PDOStatement and not actually the result of the query.
