I did some digging and found that using session.cookie_domain by setting 
it to the main domain '.sourceforge.net' will automatically make the 
cookie valid for any XX.sourceforge.net server. I found $wgCookieDomain 
in DefaultSettings.php and set it in LocalSettings.php. This seems to 
work, and eliminates my other problem of not being able to do admin 
tasks from the web. Unless there are any issues with this method, it 
seems a bit better than a directory in the project space.

Thanks so much!
