I would like to manage the time that a session expire to be forever.
What do I have to change In the php configuration file so this change is permanent and I don't have to implement this in all the code I write?
After I make a change in the php file, do I need to restart apache for the changes to take effect?
It is not possible to store the session infinitely unless you do not use garbage collection in php. You could try to set the php ini settings and set the time to 10 years
// set the max life time, after this, session is seen as garbage session.gc_maxlifetime=315360000
If you have cookies enabled:
session.use_cookies=1 #session.use_only_cookies=1 // set the cookie expiration as well session.cookie_lifetime=315360000
To avoid Int overflow, do not use a value larger than 2,147,483,647 as this is the max an Int32 can hold.
