in thread Multiple Cookies with CGI::Application

Okay Nomis52, I've done some testing on a local server, and it works for me, setting both cookies each time.

    Tested version info:
  • Apache 1.3.12
  • mod_perl 1.26
  • CGI 2.81
  • CGI::Application 2.5

I tried multiple cookies using directly, and I tried the same using CGI::Application, all under mod_perl, and under each scenario I get both cookies without issue. I know you didn't want to hear that :)

What happens when you try a very simple script like:

#!/usr/bin/perl use CGI::Application; my $a = new CGI::Application; my $c1 = $a->query->cookie(-name=>'userID', -value=>'test123', ); my $c2 = $a->query->cookie(-name=>'sessionID', -value=>'blahblahblah', ); $a->header_props(-cookie => [$c1,$c2]); $a->run;
C::A ought to give you a list of %ENV, one if which should be HTTP_COOKIE => 'userID=test123; sessionID=blahblahblah' in this case. Do you get that environment value okay, even when the cookies don't come through?

Anyway, I'm thinking maybe a version issue somewhere along the line.

Update: Below is the output from an HTTP session using the above code under mod_perl:

    Hmmm this doesn't look good, here's my output

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Date: Sun, 28 Jul 2002 05:17:56 GMT
    Server: Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.23 (Mandrake Linux/4mdk) mod_ssl/2.8.7 OpenSSL/0.9.6c PHP/4.1.2
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1
    Set-Cookie: sessionID=blahblahblah; path=/
    X-Cache: MISS from
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked

    If you reload it to see the cookies naturally only the last one is set

    <li> HTTP_COOKIE => '<b>sessionID=blahblahblah</b>'

    I tend to agree with you that this is an issue with my set-up, currently:

    • Apache 1.3.23
    • mod_perl 1.26
    • CGI 2.79
    • CGI::Application 2.4

    I'm going to give it a go on a debian box and see if thats any different.

      It works as expected on my Win2k, running ActivePerl 5.6.1
      Apache/1.3.24 and Apache/2.0.36 
      CGI::Application 2.4
      CGI 2.752
      My mod perl versions aren't relevant, since I didn't run this under mod perl (and it makes no difference).

      I would suggest you check your CGI module by attempting to use it's header method. If that doesn't produce the correct headers, then your CGI is to blame, and you should get a newer one (like 2.8).

      If it produces the correct headers, then something is wrong with your CGI::Application, and you should reinstall or upgrade it.

      If that doesn't help, well, then you have ghosts in your machine ( not good )

      ** The Third rule of perl club is a statement of fact: pod is sexy.

      I think this is a bug with mod_proxy, which affects apache 1.3.23 and 1.3.24. I had the same problem on my Mandrake box, and upgrading to 1.3.26 (from Cooker) solved the problem.

      See here for a discussion on this.

    Well, I've tried it on a debian box and it works fine as expected. For what its worth:

    • Apache 1.3.26
    • mod_perl 1.26
    • CGI 2.752
    • CGI::Application 2.1

    Thanks for everyone's help
