If you know that a cookie has been sent to the browser when it was visiting the server previously, you can check the built-in $_COOKIE array, which contains all cookies that were sent by the server previously. The script below shows you how to pickup one cookie from the $_COOKIE and loop through all cookies in $_COOKIE:

<?php

  if (isset($_COOKIE["LoginName"])) {
    $loginName = $_COOKIE["LoginName"];
    print("Received a cookie named as LoginName: ".$loginName."\n");
  } else {
    print("Did not received any cookie named as LoginName.\n");
  }
  print("All cookies received:\n");
  foreach ($_COOKIE as $name => $value) {
     print "  $name = $value\n";
  }
?>
