To set the HTTP Only flag in XAMPP, you would typically need to modify the configuration files for the web server that is running in XAMPP (usually Apache). Here are the general steps to set the HTTP Only flag in XAMPP:

  1. Locate the Apache configuration file: The main configuration file for Apache in XAMPP is typically located in the "conf" folder of your XAMPP installation directory. The file is usually named "httpd.conf" or "httpd-xampp.conf".
  2. Open the Apache configuration file in a text editor.
  3. Find the section that defines the configuration for your website or application. This is usually located within a
  4. Within this section, look for the lines that set the cookies for your website/application. You can set the HTTP Only flag for cookies by adding the following line to the configuration: Header edit Set-Cookie ^(.*)$ $1;HttpOnly This line adds the "HttpOnly" flag to all Set-Cookie headers, ensuring that the cookies are only accessible to HTTP requests and not to client-side scripts.
  5. Save the changes to the configuration file and restart the Apache server in XAMPP for the changes to take effect.

Once you have completed these steps, the HTTP Only flag should be set for cookies on your website/application when it is running in XAMPP. This helps enhance the security of your website by preventing client-side scripts from accessing sensitive cookie data.
