Session Expiry

Session Expiry

Hi There
It seems as if my sessions aren't lasting very long... so if the client doesn't pay via paypal and return to my site (checkout success page) quick enough, the sessions seem to expire...

Do the sessions I set on my order confirm page have a default timeout.

Thanks

The amount of time for sessions to time out is set on the server.


if you are using php, see the following thread on webmaster world for more details:

Thanks Jason!

Just to save the hassles of redirecting clients back to the site, I'm considering using payments pro. How does ecart match up to PCI DSS standards?

That is really a multi faceted question.


THE PCI Compliance of eCart is dependent on the PCI Compliance level of the server it is hosted on.


The main factor in PCI Compliance is the server.

The application you create using eCart cannot be PCI Compliant if the server does not reach PCI Compliance standards.

if your environment is PCI compliant, then the application created using eCart can be created to be PCI compliant.

Hi Jason,

Back to the session problem. Ok so I've kept it as Website Payments Standard, and have now moved over to storing the cart, etc. in cookies...

Now my cart isn't updating if I try and add items to it... I hope you can help...

Also, I would feel more comfortable using cookies, so how would I go about incresing the sessions' lifespan? Is this a server setting, or can I control with some code?

Thank you!

for storing the cart information, you are better of using the Session rather than cookies. Cookies are limited to maximum a maximum size, once you have a certain number oof items in your cart, you will not be able to add any more. Sessions do not have this same limitation.
