bash_profile contents & MacPorts - Need To Be Changed

I had this question after viewing Changing $PATH variable - OS X.

I have removed macports and I am wondering if this is causing a login problem with AWS's myaccount tab.  Or, if I need to remove all lines referring to macports?

export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk-mac/tools
export PS1="rjw "
export PATH="/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"
alias ll='ls -lahG'
export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/rjw/androi$

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/rjw/androi$

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/rjw/androi$

This is the path I wanted to add to my .bash_profile
/Users/rjw/Documents/Python

Currently, all of the my browsers are showing no cookies stored when I try to login to my Amazon Web Services console.

Thanks,

export PATH="$PATH:/Users/rjw/Documents/Python"
Your bash_profile is FULL of repeating $PATH declarations!!  It isn't necessarily a cause of your problem but there's a huge amount of redundant declarations in there.
Line 11 to Line 45 are the same declaration repeated
Lines 5, 7 and 9 are identical too
Line 3 is already included in the declaration on line 5,7,9 so is redundant

Serialband thanks for the code to remove macports and providing the path statement

Eoin, I took your advice and cleaned up my bash_profile by following your instructions.

Neither one of you solved my problem of no cookies being stored on my browsers.  However, you both have given me sound advice that I can use.
Your ticket requested help with clearing up your bash_profile .. you didn't outline the AWS session issue so we cannot help with that.

I'd suggest that perhaps the bash_profile has nothing to do with browser sessions but if you want to open a new issue and outline the issue with as much detail as possible someone might be able to resolve it with you.
