To fix it

I use a modified version of the farmer extension (

The problem I have it is that I cant login to all wiki by one time because the cookie prefix is different for each wiki :(

The solution I made is the define in LocalSettings.php a value for $wgCookiePrefix but it isn't enough.

I should as modify the include/Setup.php to don't sets $wgCookiePrefix if it's already define.

CU And thanks in advance,
Stéphane Brunner

Might be an idea to set $wgCookiePrefix = false; in includes/DefaultSettings.php, to avoid a register_globals injection vector.
Comment 2 Stéphane Brunner 2007-08-29 15:01:58 UTC
I don't exactly know what it's  "register_globals injection vector", 
then I'm OK with your proposition.
Comment 3 Chad H. 2008-08-24 02:35:41 UTC
Has been this way since r37893. Apparently I A) Didn't know about this bug, and B) Claimed I was fixing a completely unrelated bug (which oddly enough, I wasn't even fixing). Figures. In any case, FIXED.
