Basic cookie question

Hi Chaps,

I’m having trouble setting a cookie.

The login.php file is in a directory called ‘account’

The cookie name in Termporary Internet Files shows as:


instead of the standard


This results in the cookie being read by files with the ‘account’ directory.

I’ve searched around played around the the $path and $domain variables, but they don’t seem to do anything.

Although the PHP code looks like this:

setcookie($name, $value, $hour);

The cookie looks like this:

$name, $value, $path, $time

Can someone tell me where I’m going wrong with this?

Notice the order of arguments
name, value, expire, path

What does this return: print_r($_COOKIE)
