Login session time for admin area

  • Hi,

    Can you control the length of time a login session lasts for when you are logged into the control panel?

    One of my installs seems to log the main admin user out quite quickly (seems to be 1 minute approx) if they have a period where they are maybe doing updates but not processing saves on the content, or a short spell of inactivity?

    Approved the thread.
  • It sounds like either a misconfiguration with your PHP session timeout, or with a problem persisting sessions. Have you checked to make sure there's plenty of available disk space in your session storage location?
