How can I change session timeout value?
Check the following values in your php settings.
- session.cookie_lifetime specifies the lifetime of the cookie in seconds which is sent to the browser.
- a value of 0 means "until the browser is closed"
- session.gc_maxlifetime specifies the number of seconds after which data will be seen as ’garbage’ and cleaned up.
- garbage collection occurs during session start.
Try to set session.gc_maxlifetime to 7200. You must restart your server for this to take effect.
Thanks for the information. I was desperately looking for the variables that control session expiry i.e. session timeout value in php.ini file.
