That's how cookies work. If you want them to work across subdomains then you need to create them with a domain of ".sample.com". Coppermine doesn't have a cookie domain setting however.

Use a custom .htaccess file that takes care of the leading www subdomain to go out of harm's way.

To always use the leading www subdomain, use something like
Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

To always redirect from the leading www subdomain to just the domain, use something like
Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.domain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.*$ http://domain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
If you need details on that technology, google for it, as this is not related to coppermine.
