hey people.
this is my 1st time to get this error.
i usually save cookies using this code:

$time = time()+60*60*6;
// the time is saved for 6 hours
// then save the cookie with the $id data
setcookie("ln", $id, $time);

but with my new website. nothing is happening!!!
i am using a .htaccess, so can it be the reason??
this is the .htaccess data:

please people. i reviewed my code more than once and nothing is wrong. this is my login script:

echo '<script type="text/javascript">window.location = "../home.php";</script>';
echo '
<script type="text/javascript"> alert("please fill the form");
//here the login code
$email = $_POST['email'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
$password = md5($password);
include_once "../engine/db/main.php";
$db = new db();
$email = mysql_real_escape_string($email);
$q = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `all` WHERE email = '$email' AND password = '$password'");
echo 'Sorry, an Error has occured while we are trying to log you in. The Adiministrations System is being notified with this error and we are already trying to fix the error. Please Try again Laiter';
            echo mysql_error();
			$message =  "ERROR HAS OCCURED WHILE THE USER \" ".$email." \" was trying to login with the password \" ".$password." \" in the following link: http://awah.biz/login/login.php witht the ollowing error:".mysql_error()." ";
			$title = "Login Error";
			mail("errors@awah.biz", $title, $message, $headers);
if(mysql_num_rows($q) == 0)
echo "Sorry, we couldnt found your Email or Password in our databases. please try again";
else if(mysql_num_rows($q) >= 1)
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($q))
$id = $row['id'];
$time = time()+60*60*6;
setcookie("ln", $id, $time);
echo '
<script type="text/javascript">window.location = "../home.php"; </script>';

my erroro_reporting is set to -1 so i have to see all the errors and i disabled the redirect function to see if there is any error but i didnt see any error.\

i used another script to see if the cookies are set . the script is :

echo $_COOKIE['logedin'];
echo "<BR>\$_COOKIE['logedin'] is not set";
// the ln cookie
echo "<BR?\$_COOKIE['ln'] is set<BR>";
echo $_COOKIE['ln'];
echo "<BR>\$_COOKIE['ln'] is not set";

this thing is killing me!
please tell me what to correct.

note: my database connection is correct and all the database variables are set and working fine. i tested the id that is grabbed from the db and it was fine!

i made it1!!!!!1
it is working perfectly now!!!
it is because the cookies permissions were blocked by the .htaccess i guess
so i just changes the directory and i meoved everything to the main drectory so that the cookie become available for the whole site!
thanks anyway

You bump after only 2 hours. That's a sure fire way of not getting an answer. Glad you solved it yourself.
