There are lots of discussions about this topic online. My issue wasn't subdomain sessions being recognized by the primary domain (and vice versa), but rather just a subdomain handling things at all. You set something in the subdomain, refresh the page, and then the thing was unset. Here's what I currently have: session_name( "blah" ); ini_set( "session.cookie_domain", '.dev.example.com' ); session_set_cookie_params( 0, '/', '.dev.example.com', true, true ); setcookie( session_name(), session_id(), 0, '/' , '.example.com' ); session_start(); Things that were required, apparently: 1) Session name 2) setcookie Now with this setup, I can do this: start session in dev.example.com, access it in subsub.dev.example.com, go back and forth... session holds as expected. But what I cannot do, is: start session in subsub.dev.example.com, refresh page, have the session data hold. So lots of questions. Obviously the most important: why doesn't a session hold when I start the session in the subsub domain? Why is a session name required? (Is it?) Why is setcookie required when all I want to do is start a session? (Is it?) I don't use this step if it's a single-domain type of setup.
