Dear all,

We have created a business portal for our organization. The technology
used for that is LAMP.

Our major access management system of the portal is based on cookies.
we set some user level cookies at the time of login; using these
cookies we provide access of our pages to user.

The problem is, sometimes after login process we are getting fatal
errors due to cookies, because of cookies are not set and our files
checking for the that. But the problem we can resolve after cleaning
history, cookies, temp internet files in IE.

I am still not getting the problem and our ad-hoc solution. everytime
we get this problem we simply cleanup the history, cookies and delete
temporary internet files, and system starts working perfectly again.

Can anyone explain what exactly is happning ?

   Sessions, only sessions. You can have security hole here. If user  
know values for cookies he can set it without logging.

   First of all, check FF and Opera. I think this is IE problem -  
sometimes it's lost cookies. It can be difference in understanding  
cookie path and site, it can be cookie limit by count or size or  
something else. In any case then user is logged you must use session  
instead of set of cookies.
