ACP Session Time Outs


Recommended Posts

Will you please introduce a method which prevents session destruction while actively working within the ACP, or give the member notice that the session is about to expire so they can save their work before getting the dreaded login screen on save.

Better still, give the admins the choice to

  1. Close the session when closing the browser
  2. logging out,
  3. Or a period of (real) inactivity

I have lost count at the amount of times I have lost work in the ACP because of the session timeouts. :)

The AdminCP session timeout is based upon your PHP configuration - you can update it to extend the session timeout if you wish (using the regular session configuration options).

Would it be possible to add a last activity to the session time out at some point? This way the session doesn't expire while the ACP is in use.

Also, I don't know if this is on purpose or this is a bug. If I have a session open within my browser and I open ACP in another tab, I am presented with the login page and the other sessions are killed.

Your ACP session should not time out while you are using it

I am getting 30 mins in ACP and getting logged out.


nor should opening a new tab cause you to be logged out.

You are misunderstanding me. If I open another tab in my browser and browse to the ACP, I am prompted to sign in and I am logged out of the the session.

Ah, then yes. Logging in to the second tab causes the session from the first tab to be invalidated.

Is there any chance that you guys could give consideration to not invaliding the session when doing this? This is a right PITA when working with many opened tabs, and you browse to the ACP in another tab and lose sessions on all the other tabs.
