patch against 1.5.2 (692 bytes, patch)

Description Zbigniew Braniecki 2005-11-16 03:39:22 UTC
When you have session.auto_start=true in php.ini and you login to MediaWiki it
assigns new name to session cookie, but PHP can't change the default one
Despite of that, when later MediaWiki asks for session cookie name by
session_name() method, it returns the new (not the assigned) one.

It's also a PHP bug imho (it should return the really used name).
Comment 1 Zbigniew Braniecki 2005-11-16 03:40:08 UTC
Created attachment 1073 [details]
patch against 1.5.2

this patch adds a if() statement to check if MediaWiki can change the session
cookie name.

In 1.5.7, you can instead replace line 128 of Setup.php with this:

if (!ini_get('session.auto_start')) { // Added in case sessions auto start in PHP
	session_name( $wgCookiePrefix . '_session' );
