Hi Zicky

I have a solution for you to try. It involves restructuring your code a bit:

// get current ticket id from cookie
$currentTicketID = @$_COOKIE['ticket_id'];

// if there is no cookie already set
// create new cookie
if (!$currentTicketID) {
    $digits = mt_rand();
    //echo $digits; //prints random numbers
    $number_of_days = 30 ;
    $date_of_expiry = time() + 60 * 60 * 24 * $number_of_days ;
    setcookie( 'ticket_id', $digits, $date_of_expiry );

Give that a shot and let me know how you make out.
