COOKIE (Javascript/PHP)

I have been experiencing a lot of troubles in reading a PHP COOKIE from
javascript.

if i write the cookie and read it in javascript in the same PHP file it
works well, but if i write the cookie for instance in a Javascript(AJAX)
called PHP file, the Javascript can read it.

Any ideas why?

This is a Javascript issue and not PHP, that's why im asking it here.

Kind regards,
RootShell

There are not PHP or JavaScript cookies. There are just cookies and
PHP and JavaScript can read and manipulate them.
if i write the cookie and read it in javascript in the same PHP file it
works well, but if i write the cookie for instance in a Javascript(AJAX)
called PHP file, the Javascript can read it.
That is a mouthful of an explanation. I'm not clear what is the
problem but I'm guessing that there is something to do with the path
part of the cookie and that you are not setting that part at all or
correctly.

You are absolutely right...

I changed the path part of the cookie and it worked like it was supposed to.

Thanks for the 'late' feedback anyway.
