Document.cookie not working

Posted one year ago

If you’re having trouble with “document.cookie” it’s likely you’re working locally and not on an apache server.

opening “index.html” in your default browser will fail however “localhost:8080/index.html” will work.

If you have PHP installed locally you can power up an apache server easily by running the following command


php -S localhost:8080

The above command will start a server in the location that you ran the command.



		document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function(){
			document.cookie = "name=Chris;expires=Tue, 14 Oct 2020 20:23:32 GMT; path=/"
			allCookies = document.cookie;
			console.log('Cookie' + allCookies)
		})
