Session & subdomain

Recommended Posts

Presently i have a site mysite.com
In the home page users can login.
So I want to use a SESSION variable to store his login name and want to redirect him to user.mysite.com.
But the session variable is not available in subdomin user.mysite.com
In my server php.ini is not available.
So i expect a solution thru coding(ie not using configuration file php.ini)

Presently the problem is encountered in Firefox not in IE

Thanks

If the sub-domain is on the same server, you don't need to go through the trouble of having to save sessions in a DB (although I like to do that).

You can start by trying this:

Set the [a href=\"http://us2.php.net/session#ini.session.cookie-domain\" target=\"_blank\"]'session.cookie_domain'[/a] to '.mysite.com'. Notice there's a dot before the domain name. This allows the session cookie to be used at www.mysite.com or anysubdomain.mysite.com.

You can use [a href=\"http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.ini-set.php\" target=\"_blank\"]ini_set()[/a] or [a href=\"http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.session-set-cookie-params.php\" target=\"_blank\"]session_set_cookie_params()[/a] to set it.
