I have two subdomains in the same parent folder on the same disk on the same physical server, operating under the same instance of Apache2 and all its mods. How do I know the folders are identical? Because I did this:
cd ~/projects/subdomain2 rm -rf * cd ../ cp -rf --preserve=all subdomain1/* subdomain2/
I'm having a very specific problem on subdomain2 - specifically, IE refuses to maintain sessions for the webapp my team's developing in subdomain2, but subdomain1 the sessions are preserved correctly between page loads. That's neither here nor there; at this point I don't care why is isn't working, only that subdomain1 solves that problem...somehow. What I am asking is, why would two identical directories, with the same .htaccess rules and the same virtualhost configurations, behave differently? Any other guesses what might be causing the inconsistencies?
