Codeigniter sharing session with a simple php blog

I have to solve this issue which I'm not able to solve :( I have a blog in PHP and an ecommerce site built with CodeIgniter. Both sites have the same session informations shared, but if I go on the blog and I login, when I pass on the ecommerce the user is not recognized and the ecommerce ask for a new login to the user.

In the blog part I set the session in this way:



    $servername = 'localhost';
    $username = 'wtgecomm_ecomm';
    $password = 'ElFDeOD$o_qd';
    $dbname ='wtgecomm_ecommerce';
    $conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
     $sql = "DELETE FROM `ci_sessions` WHERE id="."'".$_COOKIE['ci_session']."'";
    if (!$conn->query($sql)) {
   // printf("Message d'erreur : %s\n", $conn->error);
    //$result = $conn->query($sql);
$_SESSION['login_id'] = '';
$_SESSION['customer_id'] = '';
header( 'Location: /'); 
if(isset($_REQUEST['login_id']) && !empty($_REQUEST['login_id']) ){

    $ci_session = $_COOKIE['ci_sessions'];
    $login_id = $_REQUEST['login_id'];
//  $sql = "INSERT INTO `ci_sessions` (`id`,`data`) VALUES ('2121212','121212121212')";
//  $ctx->exec($sql) ;
    $servername = 'localhost';
    $username = 'wtgecomm_ecomm';
    $password = 'ElFDeOD$o_qd';
    $dbname ='wtgecomm_ecommerce';
    $conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
     $query = "SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE id="."'".$login_id."'";
    if ($result = $conn->query($query)) {

    /* Récupère un tableau associatif */
    while ($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {


    /* Libération des résultats */
$_SESSION['login_id']= $login_id;

$_SESSION['userdata'] = array('user_id' => $login_id, 'username' =>$cust_email,'status'=>1,'password'=>$cust_pass );
echo true;
else {
    echo false;

In the ecommerce config.php file (CodeIgniter), I have this session configuration:

$config['sess_driver'] = 'database';
$config['sess_cookie_name'] = 'ci_session';
$config['sess_expiration'] = 7200;
$config['sess_save_path'] = 'ci_sessions';
$config['sess_match_ip'] = FALSE;
$config['sess_time_to_update'] = 300;
$config['sess_regenerate_destroy'] = TRUE;

//$config['sess_table_name'] = 'ci_sessions';
//$config['sess_match_useragent'] = TRUE;
//$config['sess_use_database'] = TRUE;

| Cookie Related Variables
| 'cookie_prefix'   = Set a cookie name prefix if you need to avoid collisions
| 'cookie_domain'   = Set to .your-domain.com for site-wide cookies
| 'cookie_path'     = Typically will be a forward slash
| 'cookie_secure'   = Cookie will only be set if a secure HTTPS connection exists.
| 'cookie_httponly' = Cookie will only be accessible via HTTP(S) (no javascript)
| Note: These settings (with the exception of 'cookie_prefix' and
|       'cookie_httponly') will also affect sessions.
$config['cookie_prefix']    = '';
$config['cookie_domain']    = '.wtgecommerce.powersoftware.in';
$config['cookie_path']      = '/';
$config['cookie_secure']    = FALSE;
$config['cookie_httponly']  = FALSE;

Where I'm wrong? I tryed in many ways, to set up the same configuration for the user session but without solution... thank you for the help.

What are the exact URLs of each of these sites?  I'm wondering if they can share cookies.

You can put it anywhere that it can be accessed via a URL - just choose a name, like temp_irene.php and store it on the server.  Then open a browser, go to the URL and see that it works (there will be some browser output, but not much).  Once you've done that on both domains, just post the link here.  I'll test as soon as I can, then you can delete the script.  Thanks!
