I tried by deleting var/cache and var/session. I also delete cookie from database. I clear my broswers cache and session. Still not working. I also setup new database(backup database), But still it is showing same message.

You need to do this.

In database.

DELETE FROM core_config_data WHERE path='web/cookie/cookie_domain';

DELETE FROM core_config_data WHERE path='web/cookie/cookie_path';

And in your /app/etc/local.xml



It will resolve your issue.

Happy Coding. :)

If someone else are using AWS Cloudfront in the front of your Magento application. Your issue can be this two parameters.

Choose which query strings to include in the cache key and Choose which cookies to include in the cache key.

Maybe this values should be whit All and All.
