Config.ini.php: cookie_expire


adjusted settings in piwkik/config/config.ini.php does not have any effect:

cookie_expire = 7200

the resulting cookies are still valid for the default settings of 2 years.

same thing changing the default values in piwik/config/global.ini.php.

what to do?

For first party cookies, you have to configure it via JavaScript.


These are the tracker methods available to change the cookie expiry:

setVisitorCookieTimeout( seconds ) – the default is 2 years
setSessionCookieTimeout( seconds ) – the default is 30 minutes
setReferralCookieTimeout( seconds ) – the default is 6 months
