  • [Forum] What should my cookie domain be?

    If I redirect the following traffic:

    mysite.com
    www.mysite.com

    to --> http://www.mysite.com/forums

    Should my cookie domain be set to .mysite.com or just (blank) in the vbulletin options?

    Thanks.

      Leave it blank unless you know why you should be changing it.

          Ok that didn't work - I previously had it at .mysite.com but changing to to blank just meant I couldn't log in.

          Changed it back and all seems ok except for one thing:

          It logs me and all my members out everytime I or they close the browser than reaccess mysite.

            When you changed it to (blank) did you delete your cookies in your browser before trying again?

              Yes - I went through the usual deletion of cookies/cache routine.

              So what would be a problem of having it set to .mysite.com if that seems to work? Would there be any issues? Frankly I don't understand why it doesn't work on blank, but it mirrors a problem I had when first moving to 4.0(3) and that's when the initial change occurred.
