Cookie not working in codeigniter 4. Need helper

#1
Hello I try to use the cookie system to store some information and also retrieve it I discovered that all the helper is not working.
In my library class fore remember me I try using the set_cookie(), get_cookie(), delete_cookie() after I have include the cookie helper through the function helper('cookie')

Hi, can you post your code? Some guy on the forum was trying to set a cookie with a negative timestamp.
You can see things I made with codeigniter here: itart.pro its not overly impressive as I have very little time to learn.

Here is the my code for setting the cookie
if ($remember === 1) {
           
            set_cookie(array(
                'name' => getConfig('auth_cookie_id'),
                'value' => $this->_user->enc_key,
                'expire' => \time() + getConfig('auth_cookie_expiry'),
                'httponly' => FALSE
            ));

            // store encrypted key in cookie
            set_cookie(array(
                'name' => getConfig('auth_cookie_key'),
                'value' => $enkey,
                'expire' => \time() + getConfig('auth_cookie_expiry'),
                'httponly' => FALSE
            ));
        } else {
            // set what will be stored in the session
            $data = array(
                getConfig('auth_session_id') => $this->_user->enc_key,
                getConfig('auth_session_key') => $enkey
            );

            // store data in the session
            session()->set($data);
        }


Here, is where i try to get the cookie data
if (get_cookie(getConfig('auth_cookie_id'), TRUE) && get_cookie(getConfig('auth_cookie_key'), TRUE)) {
            // store cookie informations in variables
            $encryptedUserIDs = get_cookie(getConfig('auth_cookie_id'), TRUE);
            echo $enckey = get_cookie(getConfig('auth_cookie_key'), TRUE);

            $validate_using = 'cookie';
        } else {
            // store session informations in variables
            $encryptedUserIDs = session()->get(getConfig('auth_session_id'));
            $enckey = session()->get(getConfig('auth_session_key'));

            $validate_using = 'session';
        }

I was able to set and read a cookie just fine with your stripped code. You probably have a problem with your getConfig() function. Heres a stripped to barebones code that worked. Just build your code up until you find the problem. Try and echo out getConfig('auth_cookie_expiry') and see if you get the correct value? Also your XSS_Clean set to true looks suspicious on the get_cookie() func. switch it to false maybe?

PHP Code:
    public function testSetCookies()
    {
        helper('cookie');
        set_cookie([
            'name' => 'auth_cookie_id',
            'value' => 'value_of_cookie',
            'expire' => time() + 1000,
            'httponly' => false
        
]);

        // store encrypted key in cookie
        set_cookie([
            'name' => 'auth_cookie_key',
            'value' => 'value_of_encrypted_cokie',
            'expire' => time() + 1000,
            'httponly' => false
        
]);
    }

    public function testReadCookies()
    {
        helper('cookie');
        if (get_cookie('auth_cookie_id'true) && get_cookie('auth_cookie_key'true)) {
            echo $_COOKIE['auth_cookie_id'];
            echo 
'<br>';
            echo $_COOKIE['auth_cookie_key'];
        }
    

Also try this extension in chrome. It really eases process of testing cookies.

"I just used your code in my code but not working also"

Oh, that's inconvenient. Try and set a cookie in a bare index.php page, without CI4, with PHP function

PHP Code:
<?php

$secure 
false;
if ((!empty(
$_SERVER['HTTPS']) && $_SERVER['HTTPS'] !== 'off')) {
    $secure true;
}

setcookie("Cookie_name""Cookie_value"time() + 1000'/'''$secure); 



if still not working....well then off to the internet to look for reasons why cookie not setting  Confused

P.S. also try in different browsers.

Weird. Is your CI4 composer installed or unzipped?

Try and add this 'domain' => ''
and maybe this 'secure' => false,

then test with this:

PHP Code:
public function testSetCookies()
    {
        helper('cookie');
        set_cookie([
            'name' => 'auth_cookie_id',
            'value' => 'value_of_cookie',
            'expire' => time() + 1000,
            'domain' => '',
            
'secure' => false,
            'httponly' => false
        
]);

        // store encrypted key in cookie
        set_cookie([
            'name' => 'auth_cookie_key',
            'value' => 'value_of_encrypted_cokie',
            'expire' => time() + 1000,
            'domain' => '',
            
'secure' => false,
            'httponly' => false
        
]);
    }

    public function testReadCookies()
    {
        helper('cookie');
        if (get_cookie('auth_cookie_id'true) && get_cookie('auth_cookie_key'true)) {
            echo $_COOKIE['auth_cookie_id'];
            echo '<br>';
            echo $_COOKIE['auth_cookie_key'];
        }
    

I just noticed that if I set any type of domain in cookie set up they wouldn't work. Please write back if that did it.

Also check what you have set up in App/Config
I have this:
PHP Code:
    public $cookiePrefix   '';
    public 
$cookieDomain   '';
    public 
$cookiePath     '/';
    public 
$cookieSecure   false;
    public 
$cookieHTTPOnly false
