I have yet to run across anyone in the Google search result world that is running a CakePHP application that contains multiple sub-applications. I have been developing multiple web-based applications in CakePHP that all reside in a single virtual host. The “master” application controls access to these applications. Each application is a sub-directory of the master APP/webroot (actually contains symlinks pointing back to the applications’ APP/webroot and Apache +FollowSymLinks).
My Session->flash notices do not work when I call a redirect within these sub-applications. If I do NOT redirect, then the flash appears as expected. The moment I redirect, it’s gone.
