Subject RE: [users@httpd] Potentially problems with cookies
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2003 22:32:26 GMT
Well, I have gone through with having the PHP applications tested by the
people who wrote the apps (scripts) I am having trouble with and they
blame it on the fact that my browser is currently set to not accept
cookies because on their end (under an OS other than Windows) everything
works fine, but when I attempt it on any Windows system with IE is
doesn't work which is that has lead me to thinking that the CookieStyle
directive may be causing the problem for IE and not for, say, Netscape
in a Unix-style environment.  It should be noted, that all of the
systems I have tried it on are  all set to accept cookies and work just
fine with cookies from other websites.  I think the part I am hazy on is
the instructions to 'recompile' stuff...in order to make the CookieStyle
directive work, is it not just a matter of placing it in the httpd.conf
file and restarting Apache?  I think that if I have to get into
recompiling things then this issue has just shot up over my head and I
will just learn to deal with it.

are you sure the application is sending a cooking?

I don't know PHP, but just because you have to login to an application,
doesn't mean it sends a cookie. This will work regardless of browser
choice.

Subject: [users@httpd] Potentially problems with cookies


I am running into a problem and I think I have found a potential
solution but I am not having any luck.  My problem is that anything I
add to my website that requires the user to login (like a PHP app), it
seems that no cookie is sent to acknowledge a successful login.  I have
enabled the 'LoadModule usertrack_module modules/mod_usertrack.so'.
However, it seems to work for people using non-Windows browsers so I
have attempted to add the CookieStyle RFC2965 directive to the
VirtualHost section of my httpd.conf to make it work with IE seeing as
the majority of my users will be using IE 6.  Am I way off base?  Should
I turn and run with my tail between my legs?  Pertinent info would be
Windows XP Pro SP1, and Apache 2.0.44 all running locally.  I have been
through the documentation, but I am not 100% sure what I am looking for.
Also, I have been down the 'session' configuration stuff in PHP and
according to some session tests, it is configured correctly.  Is there a
test page out there I can use to verify that my server is correctly
sending cookies?
