Custom session timeout settings for admin

Mark Scholten shared this idea 6 years ago

It would be nice to have an option to set the session timeout for admins. Currently it logs out admins to fast for us, for us it should be optimal to have it set to something like 8-24 hours.

When logging into the admin area there is a remember me box that can be checked to stay logged in indefinitely. Then the session timeout doesn't matter. But if you do want to increase the session timeout length, then that's a PHP setting and one you can simply edit via the php.ini configuration setting for your server.

I second that. I would prefer to have it set to 'never', as it was before.

+1. There must be somewhere to adjust this at a coding level, right?

Very boring to re-login constantly

"you can simply edit via the php.ini configuration setting for your server" true, but you fail to mention that it affects EVERY PHP session, not just WHMCS.
