hey, i searched here and read the cookie related issues. Seems none are the issue i am having... well, that i know of.
Fresh xampp install, mysql. i cant login with created password as cookies are disabled (apparently).
Without password, i can goto phpmyadmin, but cant drop tables as cookies are not enabled (apparently).
I say apparently as they are indeed enabled, i even added localhost, 127.0.0.1 to allowed sites in both browsers.
yes cookies are working because on live sites, i have no issues.
