Joomla – Extending Admin Session Timeout / expiry June 16, 2011

Posted by Tournas Dimitrios in Joomla-1.6.

I’ve got Joomla running locally on my laptop (under Xamp server) and I use it for  testing purposes – not live – I want to disable the session timeout/expiry feature for administrator… reason being, its just annoying having to log in everytime I return to my laptop from doing something else… or returning to Joomla admin page from being on other pages for too long…

It can be done by extending the session time  , you’ll find the setting in Joomla Administrator Backend, Site > Global Configuration > System tab ->Set ‘Session Lifetime’ to a very high number ( the default is 15 min )
