  • 2.x->3.5 migration, where in the db does it store the cookie url?

    I am upgrading to 3.5.x from 2.x, and I am creating a temp dir and db to test things out. I'd like some users to test the new install, and am wondering, where in the DB does vBulletin store the cookie url? Since right now it is storing cookies with rather than my temp dir.

    I found the db entry in the settins table (cookiepath), but that doesn't seem to change anything. Cookies still being set in the previous path.

      You can find this with this query:

      SELECT * FROM `setting` WHERE varname='cookiedomain';

      You can also upload the tools.php script in the 'do_no
      t_upload' folder of the vB zip file to your Admin CP directory and use this to reset the cookie domain and path back to the defaults. And then leave your cookie domain and path at the default settings. There is no reason to change these. Instead specify a unique cookie prefix in config.php.

      setting in config.php instead.
