[Mediawiki-l] Multiple wikis - dealing with cookies

Right below this:

$wgSitename         = "Your Wiki Name";

add the line:

ini_set("session.name", "{$wgSitename}Session");

So that it looks like:

$wgSitename         = "Your Wiki Name";
ini_set("session.name", "{$wgSitename}Session");

I host dozens on the same domain like this - works great. Creates a separate 
session for each wiki, and thus different cookies.
