#2683 Wisp Session Cookie

SlimerDude Mon 5 Feb

As we're on the topic of Wisp Sessions...


1). Could Wisp be updated to make the name of the session cookie (namely fanws) be configurable? It would really help out a side project of mine if it could be picked up from a config file. (sessionCookieName in /etc/web/config.props maybe?)

It's only used in one (or two) places so it should be a minor change.


2). Plus, the server HTTP response header that's always added, could that be moved out to extraResHeaders in /etc/web/config.props? I can manually remove the header myself, but it'd be easier to just modify the config.


3). Also, I noted a very minor case of session ID fixation. Should an invalid or expired session cookie be sent to Wisp, Wisp creates a new session with the same ID. Whereas ideally, a new ID would be created for the new session.

And while I'm on a web roll, here's a patch to add 308 - Permanent Redirect to the list of status codes in WebRes:

I think adding in support for res code 418 is of utter-most importance.
