login timeout

Hey Ray

Have been migrating all clients tyo a new server and provider and it seems like they dont have an auto logout timeout set (Ihave asked) so was wondering how I could build that into the site automatically?

All server sessions should timeout eventually if operating properly. If they aren't, then it is an issue with the permissions on the session folder not deleting session files properly. The session timeout can be found by viewing phpinfo and the session.gc_maxlifetime value. That value is in seconds and can be edited to be whatever length you need.

By default, sessions are stored as text files in a folder (also saved in the php.ini file session.save_path). It can happen that that folder doesn't have proper permissions and can't delete the session files like it is supposed to after the timeout expires. This can cause sessions to persist indefinitely and will eventually be a disk space issue on your server.
