I have a website and I have configured it such that only once the user accepts the use of cookies on their website, cookies will be enabled.

I tried using javascript to delete all cookies on page load. But for some reason one cookie still remains.. and the cookie in itself and it's value are a string of junk characters. Cookie name: SESSbcb9eecbd50e36ecb0e5050944c6a793 Cookie Value: r87wIdULAl26ZINb3F7QuCbajCwskPi99eEjJh6VtZ0

Based on what I have read online, cookies that are httpOnly cannot be deleted. Is this true? Can it be done through Drupal core itself? Please let me know. Thanks.

  • That's your browsers session with the server the site is running on. Not sure if you can not have that set its fairly important to everything

I'm assuming you are attempting to comply with the new EU privacy laws... I suggest you use https://www.drupal.org/project/eu_cookie_compliance since they have done a lot of work to make sure that sites with this module installed are in compliance and as changes are needed the module will be updated.
