Increase phpmyadmin session/login time in Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic

Phpmyadmin Login time

To increase the loging time of phpmyadmin edit :


Add the following line :

$cfg['LoginCookieValidity'] = 3600 * 9;

To make the login time 9 hours.

Along with this also check session.gc_maxlifetime in to be higher than or equal to this value. Otherwise session time will be the lower of the two values.
