I upgraded from 1.8 to 1.9.1.
Add to cart goes to an 'empty cart'.
I ensured var (cache, session, session logs appear) was writable, refreshed cache and session (then same thing happens), cookie lifetime set to 86400, I tried cookie path '/' and cookie domain (various configs of mydomain.com, .mydomain.com). When I change these last cookie configs, I can add to cart and get to the onepage checkout, but on the billing information step it redirects back to an empty cart.
All settings in
system->web->session validation settings set to no except
Use SID on Frontend.
Also tried using db session storage instead of files.
When I enter
date on the server it shows the correct BST time.
The cart page is http, the checkout https. All good when I run
What could be the problem?
So after it went well again last night I have the same problem. I had just cloned the site and created a test environment, changed core_config_data, repointed app/etc/local.xml, flushed the cache and reindexed, and the site looks the same. I notice that before, when I could add to cart, there was the extra cookies in the console (PHPSESSID, BX, cfduid) but they're not there now. Also the frontend cookie changes between before the add to cart and after the add to cart. Now both sites show an empty cart after add to cart.
