Please help.. I have been stuck on the section for days. I am running the code on a local server(xampp)..but it does not seen to be working..The cookie is being set to the DoLogin.php and not in the index.php file...

here are the code snippets..

//Code for creating the jwt as per video

$expTime = time() + 9600; $jwt =\Firebase\JWT\JWT::encode([ 'iss'=>request()->getBaseUrl(), 'sub'=>"{$user['id']}", 'exp'=>$expTime, 'iat'=>time(), 'nbf'=>time(), 'is_admin'=>$user['role_ID']==1 ],getenv("SECRET_KEY"),'HS256');

$accessToken = new \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Cookie('access_token',$jwt,$expTime,'/', getenv('COOKIE_DOMAIN'));


//The code for the redirect function..

function redirect($path, $extra =[]){

    $response = \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::create (null,\symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::HTTP_FOUND, ['Location'=>'/UserAuthentication2/'.$path]);
