Session problem with subdomains

Hi Frederick, ok..so should it work in the production mode? where the
session_domain would be like '.domain.com'

that should be ok.

config.action_controller.session = {
:session_domain => "users.local",
:session_key => '_app_session',
:secret => '..............'}

But the session isn't shared with localhost and foo.users.localhost.. so

Those are all really differnt domains. Setting the domain to
users.local would allow sharing with anything.users.local and
users.local but nothing more. Remember to restart the app between
changes

i've tried to change another time the session_domain to ".users.local",
"users.localhost", ".users.localhost", ".local", "local", ".localhost"
and "localhost"....and nothing... the session isn't shared at all.
This is my subdomain config:

SubdomainFu.tld_sizes = { :development => 0,
:test => 2,
:production => 1 }

It's just a single app which serve everything, not more different apps
for each subdomain. isn't possible neither in this case to have
different subdomains (foo.users.domain.com and foo.blogs.domain.com for
the production; foo.users.localhost and foo.blogs.localhost for the
development)?

you'd need something like

if RAILS_ENV=='production'
config.action_controller.session = {
  :session_domain => "domain.com"
...
else

end

but like I said foo.users.localhost and foo.blogs.localhost will never
be able to share cookies (and hence sessions. You need an intermediate
domain, eg foo.users.domain.localhost and foo.blogs.domain.localhost

Fred

that should be ok.

ok, i'll try directly in production mode

Those are all really differnt domains. Setting the domain to
users.local would allow sharing with anything.users.local and
users.local but nothing more. Remember to restart the app between
changes

yep, i restart it everytime

you'd need something like

if RAILS_ENV=='production'
config.action_controller.session = {
  :session_domain => "domain.com"
...
else

end

or i could set it directly in the enviroment folder, for production.rb
and development.rb..

but like I said foo.users.localhost and foo.blogs.localhost will never
be able to share cookies (and hence sessions. You need an intermediate
domain, eg foo.users.domain.localhost and foo.blogs.domain.localhost

about the dev enviroment i don't care too much, but the production env
in that case should works (as the intermediate domain would be the real
domain, so domain.localhost would be domain.com)

thank you
