Apache Cookie Issue

Discussion in 'Perl' started by Marcellus Wallace, Aug 29, 2004.

  1. i've been trying to fix this all day, and could use some help

    my setup:

    i have an apache server (1.3.29 on linux) on my home network. I use this
    server for development (perl).

    i have a site that uses Apache::AuthCookie for authentication

    i access this site through 192.168.0.56/nameofsite.com

    submitting the login form (username/password) sets the cookie and I'm in,
    always has worked until today.

    all of a sudden I can't set cookies when accessing this server. It still
    worked using firefox so I figured it may be my IE, but I've tried it from IE
    on 3 different machines on the network that haven't been touch in a while
    and same result. also have tried the live site (different server) with IE
    and it works fine (same exact code, even brought that code down to my dev
    machine to check, no go)

    I tried setting IE to prompt for cookies and there is no prompt, it's as if
    it's automatically blocking IE cookies. I know if it's checking against the
    database because if I put in the wrong password it tell me so. So again,
    it's for some reason auto rejecting IE cookies.


    Any help would be appreciated and please reply to the group.

    Thanks

    I don't believe HTTP cookies are supposed to work on sites with
    numeric IP addresses in their URLs. A cookie belongs to a domain name
    suffix. If it ever seemed to work this was probably an artifact.

    This has nothing to do with Perl.
