Transcript

  • 1. PHP Cookies [email_address]
  • 2. What is Cookies?
    • A cookie is a small file that the server embeds on the user's computer.
    • A cookie is often used to identify a user.
    • Each time the same computer requests a page with a browser, it will send the cookie too.
    • With PHP, you can both create and retrieve cookie values.
  • 3. How to Create a Cookie?
    • setcookie(name, value, expire, path, domain);
    • The setcookie() function must appear BEFORE the <html> tag.
    • The value of the cookie is automatically URLencoded when sending the cookie, and automatically decoded when received (to prevent URLencoding, use setrawcookie() instead).
  • 4. Example - Cookies <?php setcookie(&quot;user&quot;, “mni&quot;, time()+3600); ?> <html> <body> </body> </html> Create a cookie named user Assign a value to the cookie (user) The cookie will expire in ONE hour
  • 5. How to Retrieve a Cookie Value? <html> <body> <?php if (isset($_COOKIE[&quot;user&quot;])) echo &quot;Welcome &quot; . $_COOKIE[&quot;user&quot;] . &quot;!<br />&quot;; else echo &quot;Welcome guest!<br />&quot;; ?> </body> </html> Retrieve a value from a cookie called user
  • 6. How to Delete a Cookie? <?php setcookie(&quot;user&quot;, &quot;&quot;, time()-3600); ?> Set the expiration date to ONE hour ago Reset the value of cookie
  • 7. Discussion
    • Advantages of using cookies
    • Disadvantages of using cookies
