Cookie won't save

test.php

<?php
setcookie("test", 'tester', time()+3600*24*30 , "/", ".mystagingsite1.com");
header('Location: test2.php');
?>

test2.php

<?php
echo '<pre>';
print_r($_COOKIE);
echo '</pre>';
?>

 

This does not work. It's not setting the cookie at all.  Is there something I am doing wrong here?

Another question. I just found out it is available under $_REQUEST but not $_COOKIE that is strange. Is there a reason it's working like that?  Am I doing something wrong in setting it?

 

However, request even only works in a test environment. When I try to put this into a script as just basic it's not saving the session data. Is there something I am doing wrong?

I am testing this entire thing on a production server. I am confused as to why it's not working though, because I have done this before many times with no issues.  If I do the basic test I can access it using $_REQUEST even after browser close, but not in $_COOKIE.  Also when I have it in the actual login script and set 2-3 cookies none of them are saving for some reason. I have never had this kind of issue before.

I am not sure what you mean?  The only thing I gather from what your saying is I would need to replace the ".mystagingsite1.net to "www.mystagingsite1.net" but I tried

that and it doesn't work either.  Also, according to the documentations the . acts like a wildcard when setting the cookie.  So it's the base domain.

 

So using ".mystagingsite1.net" should work whether the website domain is www.mystagingsite1.net or mystagingsite1.net.  It's even recommended to show it without the

www at the start.  Is that what you meant?  Either way it doesn't work, as that was one of the first things I tried.

hehe, I understand what you mean now. It would help a lot if I set the .com to .net instead, I am guessing that was an issue there.  :)

 

OK, so that got the basic cookie working.  So now at least I have verified that the cookies are working on my server.  However, there is still something strange when I try to set them in a live environment (meaning in the actual working code.  However, I just went back and retested and it seems there working now.  So it must have been that issue.  There might have been some other issues with how I was doing the time. It seems to all be working now, thanks again.
