Keeping session alive for 2 days

On the admin pages of my website I need to keep them open for over 24 hours. Mainly on the add page. I assume it needs to set a session cookie for x period of time. Read many posts here and elsewhere but there is no clear answer other than setting the php.ini setting which I don't believe is an option.

I see the cookies setting in Data bridge but cant find clear instructions to use them. I assume I set a certain session variable? Does this need to be done on every page or only the login page? If you have a tutorial somewhere on that it would be great.
Thanks.

An update to the php.ini or .htaccess file to set the session.gc_maxlifetime is probably the best solution.

You could do it in the php code itself with:
ini_set('session.gc_maxlifetime', 3600*24);

But you would probably have to put that on every admin page to make sure it didn't get reset to the default. One option might be to add it to your connection include or another include that might already be on all of your pages.

Another option is to use a standard cookie to store and retrieve session data. That would work for more long-term session persistence, but it would also take a bit more work.
