Deleting cookies using the setcookie function in PHP:

The setcookie() function can actually accept up to six arguments, but only one argument is actually required — and that is the cookie name. If you use the setcookie function, and just pass a cookie name without a value, then it will have the same effect as deleting the existing cookie with the same exact name. For example, to create a cookie called first_name, you use this line:

setcookie('first_name', 'vrije'); 

And to delete the first_name cookie, you would do this:

I am trying to figure out if I can run my sessionpersistence script that I run with Apache to see if sessions persist between two tomcat sites on two separate servers. The load balancer has session persistence enabled but Iam unsure how to test it. My thought was that I would just add the following php script to check, but apparently I am doing something wrong. The script is this:

but it seems not to like it if I add it from the webapps directory or from inside a directory under that. Is there some special trick to running php from inside tomcat ? I have tomcat set up the same on both servers and am fronting it with Apache if that adds options for me.

I am having trouble with session vars. I'm trying to implement the credit card direct pay method outlined here...

Basically, page 1 is my form that goes outside my site to the cc gateway company then comes back with a result... (PG2)

Problem: if I try to create session vars on page 1 - they don't work on page 2.

Am I correct in thinking that when this process leaves my site and goes to the gateway, then returns, it is similar to creating a new session and that is why the session vars don't remain active?
