I am having a problem where I am able to successfully set (and retrieve) session data in my login controller, but when I forward a user to on to the destination page, the session data that I set is not being found. I have researched and found others saying that playing around with the cookie domain in the config file has helped them, but it doesn't seem to do anything for my problem. If it helps for troubleshooting, I'm using an HTTPS site with the cookie_secure set to TRUE and have tried both a blank domain and ".mydomain.com" and it doesn't seem to help. sess_encrypt_cookie is TRUE and sess_use_database if FALSE. I have verified that the system clock is set correctly as well.
Why isn't my session persisting?!
