Set cookie for domain instead of subDomain using NodeJS and ExpressJS


Question

I have been using expressjs and mongostore for session management. Following is the code to configure store in expressjs,

app.configure(function(){
    app.use(express.session({
        secret: conf.secret,
        maxAge: new Date(Date.now() + 3600000),
        cookie: { path: '/' },
        store: new MongoStore(conf.db)
    }));
});

I had mentioned the cookie path in the above code. But it sets the cookie in sub.domain.com instead of .domain.com. How do i achieve this?

Try to use the following link to configure.

res.cookie('name', 'tobi', { domain: '.example.com', path: '/admin', secure: true });
