ABCD Central uses the session-variables of PHP (in php.ini) for its sessions management. If you have access to this file php.ini on the server, you could check for the value of session.gc_maxlifetime (e.g. = 1440 is a common value meaning 24 minutes).

If not, perhaps putting this in your config.php (in htdocs/central) :

      ini_set('session.gc_maxlifetime', 1440);

could also do the trick, but unfortunately there are more tricks (like garbage collection based on a cron (scheduled) script...) depending on the server configuration, so it is not always unequivocal.

Subject: [Isis-users] Hwo to change expiration time for ABCD sessions?

Hello, when a logged-in ABCD session is not used for a certain amount of time (I think currently for 5 minutes) the user can no longer continue the work at a later time.
The ABCD message is "Session expired or you are not logged in".

How can we change the expiration time? We're using ABCD 1.4 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
