Settings mixed with WP installations sharing same database
|Reported by:||GDragoN||Owned by:|
I have WP website installed on main domain, and another WP installation on subdomain. These two share users tables.
When I rearrange admin dashboard widgets, or post editor widgets in one installation, other one uses same settings making the mess due to differences in available elements (different plugins installed).
All WP settings cookies are saved without proper setting of the cookie path/domain, and all sub-domains use same cookies as the main domain does. Cookies have to have full domain set to avoid mix-up like it happens now.
Same issue happens with Opera, Chrome and Firefox.
Change History (12)
- Summary changed from Settings cookies mixed with WP installations on main domain and subdomains to Settings mixed with WP installations sharing same database
