Isn't there a way to set the login timeout? I thought there was, but I don't remember where it is. It really ticks me off to work on a page only to lose it all because I've been logged out for inactivity.

I would also like to know where to modify the admin session time.


I have modified the line 'define('SESSION_ALIVE_TIME', 7200);' in sessions.php in the 'core' folder to a very low value and this has worked. So presumably, you can set it to a higher value than 7200? I haven't checked yet to see if it effects the rest of the store or causes any issues.

Update 2.

This also effects the customer sessions on the storefront so I don't know if there is a way of setting 1 for admin and another for the storefront?

you are the lucky guy.
I set the 7200 to a lower value, and it doesn't work for the storefront! but ok for the back-end. very strange...
I asked the CS support engineer, and they told me "Most probably this problem is caused by some your server settings".
but my support period is expired now.
Anyone here can help me?
Thanks in advance!

My version is 1.3.5 SP4
