why cant i turn cookies on?

8 posts in this topic

I am trying to turn cookies on but it keeps telling me that I do not have them turned on in my browser. But I do, in all three that i am testing with. Any ideas why this is happening or where I should go to read up on it?

 

Everytime I turn it on in admin and try to log into my account the following Cookie Usage screen comes up:

That is probably caused by an incorect cookie path setting in this file: includes/configure.php

I had this same problem and I solved it by opening the configure.php file mentioned above (in the includes folder). Once I verified that 'HTTP_SERVER' and 'HTTPS_SERVER' were defined correctly in lines 14 and 15, I made sure that 'HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', and 'HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH' were empty on lines 17-20; that is, that there was no path specified in between the single quotes. Then the login screen came up.

Fine - but can your website keep a session trail?

I am getting exactly the same problem, I do not have ssl enabled on my server and whatever I do on the includes/configure.php file I keep getting the cookie_usage page.

 

Can anyone give a definitive example of the settings that should be used please?

 

Thanks.
