View Full Version : need help with PHP env variable

12-28-2003, 08:06 PM
Hi all,

I was working on getting a web tool configured on my web site www.codehooligans.com and ended up needing to look at my phpinfo().

In this I noticed that for some reason a PHP environment var _COOKIE['user'] is being defined with a value of 'FPM'. For the life of me I cannot determine where this is coming from.

I have removed all cookies on my local system. I checked my php.ini file.

Any ideas?


P.S. The interesting this is the value 'FPM' is my initial. Interesting

On my laptop (Win2000) removed all cookies from the 'C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Cookies\' folder. I first just removed any that had the '<User>@codehooligans.com'. Then restarted all browsers. This didn't seem to work. So I moved all files from the 'Cookies' folder.

Not really sure how to remove cookies from the site.

The URL (which has not authentication or cookie code) is

I just tried this morning from work and the entry is no longer there. This makes me thing it could be from my 3 home systems.
