Several of us work the same computer all day on the same cart. As we are working on spreadsheets to upload, when we go back to upload, the cart has logged us off (max 2). Is there a way of disabling this automatic logoff feature or extending the timer by 5 or so?

There is a SESSION LIMIT set in PHP - 24 minites.... Change the TIME OUT (which is in seconds) to say 2700 = 45 Min (but don't exceed - 1 Hour - this as your session data could muck up your server....)

In PHP.INI (server file) change:
session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440
to
session.gc_maxlifetime = 2700

Else make sure you re-fresh every 15 mins. to renew the session...

Good Luck!

Was able to edit it and we are testing it to see if any other affects on server issues. Thanks again!
