lets say this cookie is set...

Code: Select all

setcookie ("test", $val, time()+3600, '/');

What is the '/' for?

The domain. It doesn't really need to be set, but I find that if I use '/' it stops unknown bugs concerning cookies popping up. Basically that / means the cookie value can be used in any directory in that site (you can have different values for the same variable for different portions of the site).

Have a look at the setcookie() function
