where are cookies in Linux are stored.


Hi,
where does the netscape browser (on Linux) will store the cookies sent by any server. what is the pathname. is it configurable at the time of installation of netscape browser. If not, where will it store the cookies information. I mean the absolute path name of the cookies information. will it be available in /tmp directory or somewhere else?

Thanks
Dhana

I don't use netscape but I would be they are stored in you ~/HOME dir.

Try:

$cd /home/user_name
$ls -a

look for a .netscape file and cd to it. sniff around.

Hi,
In my home directory I couldn't find any directory with the name .netscape. Is it problem with the installation. I installed netscape with different user login.

Thanks

wel then cd to that dir and look. although I would thin if you launched it as this user you should have a file in there. Post the output from

$cd /home/your_user_name
$ls -a
