  • Session Timeout

    I know this has been discussed several times but I've not found a real cohesive explaination of how to do this best.

    1. I don't want to rely on cookies to help with this. It needs to be straight php.
    2. I probably won't have access to the php.ini file so manipulating that is out of the question.
    3. The main goal is not to log a user out after x minutes, but rather to keep them logged in as long as possible without losing their session variable -- specifically [user-id]
    4. Basically I want to keep a session alive for at least 8 hours (full working day) but when it's done, have it re-direct to the login screen.

    Any thoughts? examples would be nice as well, though I can probably go off of ideas as well.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Re: Session Timeout

    I have the same problem. Tried putting .htaccess with these lines as suggested in some forums but didn't work.

    php_value session.cookie_lifetime 32400
    php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 32400


    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

      Re: Session Timeout

      Ok, i think i got it.


      in .htaccess file:

      php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 28800 | --> 8hrs
      php_value session.save_path "relative path to sc tmp folder like: /home/user/.../_lib/tmp" | --> this will save the session data in the tmp folder inside _lib


      In the production environment --> Configure production environment

      Temporary files directory --> same relative path given in the .htaccess.

            I haven't tested it in the windows (as i deploy the apps to the server and test it there) but maybe this will help you:
