In .htaccess I've added
php_value session.name "SID"
This seems to have no effect, however, and no errors are thrown in error_log. Other rewrite rules in the same .htaccess file are working as expected.
Why isn't htaccess following this php_value directive? And is there a way to test if php_values or php_flags are being used?
PHP 5.3.8 is running as an Apache 2.2.21 module, not CGI.
UPDATE: Adding php_value session.name "SID" to default-server.conf works as intended. I'm still not sure how this doesn't work in the .htaccess though. In default-server.conf I have 'AllowOverride All' and 'Options All' (for testing this).
