Cookies, locations & expire
Posted on 2000-05-15
I'm developing a web site with a login system. Once you login you get a cookie with an encrypted username and pass. Subsequent pages then read this cookie and look you up in a DB to determine you access level if any. I give the cookie an expiry date of one hour from its creation (and 1 minute for debug).
This worked fine until my network administrator installed a NT server and stuff. Now my cookie goes into the local DIR of c:\winNT\profiles\myusername\cookies which is where it always did go and it seems to expire from here as it should. The trouble is my cookie also seems toi get written to c:\winNT\profiles\myusername\tempory internet files where is does not expire for much longer (several hours).
How do I fix this problem?
Thanks in advance,
