Problem with sessions and IE

Hello guys,

I have a very big issue with Internet Explorer and sessions!

Indeed, since I migrated my whole application to rails 2.1.1 from rails
1.2.3, IE doesn't keep session at all.

# controller

  def action1
    session[:foo] = 'foo'

  def action2
    render(:text => "session[:foo] = " + session[:foo])

Call action1 then action2.

If I use IE, session[:foo] will be empty after action2.

Everything works perfectly with all browsers but IE.
And obvisouly my Internet Explorer accept all cookies, all sessions with
lower security level etc...

I can also track what's going on step by step because I store my
sessions in MySQL with active_record:

Actually, each time I call a new webpage (new action) with IE, rails
will automatically create a new session in the database with a new
session_id instead of taking the existing one. As usual, everything
works as intended with all other browsers.

I don't know what to do anymore!
Down on my knees I beg you!

Help me please!



I tested script like yours in my IE and working fine here.

you can check your development.log maybe it help you.

good luck

It's really wired actually!

Sometimes it works .. sometines it's not!

Sometimes IE will create a new session in my database for each new
action sometimes it will keep the existing session :confused:

thx anyway!

Wired isn't it ?

open your config/environment.rb

  config.action_controller.session_store = :active_record_store

and ADD it :

  config.action_controller.perform_caching = true

And check your environment.rb

Have you change it, 1.2.3, to be 2.1.1 ???
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '1.2.3' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

and open your Application.rb, make sure it is correct :

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  # Pick a unique cookie name to distinguish our session data from
  session :session_key => '_ProjectName_session_id'
