Here's one way to do that
(This is from 'Professional PHP Programming' published by Wrox Press):

Step 1: 
  - send a set-cookie request
  - reload current page

Step 2:
  - check whether set-cookie request was successful


if (empty($check)) {
    $page = "$PHP_SELF?check=1";
    header("Location: $page");
    setcookie("testcookie", "1");
} else {
    if (empty($testcookie)) {
        echo "Could not set test cookie. You browser has disabled
cookies support.";
    } else {
        echo "Your browser supports cookies


Hope that helps. ;)
