    session timeout with php_value session.gc_maxlifetime

    After my users log in, the $_SESSION["logged_in"] expires after inactivity of the default 24 mins (1440 secs) and logs them out.

    I want to extend this to 2 hours (7200 secs), but adding the below into my .htaccess is not doing it.

    Code:
    php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 7200
    How can I extend the session timeout to 7200 with confidence that it is kicking in?
    I want to be able to do it in the .htaccess as I do not want to change it server wide in my php.ini

    Thanks in advance.

    I once heard that you can have individual php.ini files in seperate directories. You might want to consider that option.
    See my new CodingForums Blog: http://www.codingforums.com/blogs/tangoforce/

    Many useful explanations and tips including: Cannot modify headers - already sent, The IE if (isset($_POST['submit'])) bug explained, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, debugging tips and much more!
