Admin login session timeout settings

We’re running phpList 3.2.5 but would like to edit the timeout / logout time when logged in to the system as an administrator. Presumably there’s a setting somewhere that logs you out after a defined amount of time of inactivity?

Please could someone tell me how to edit this time?

Many thanks

You can edit this value… it might be the one you are looking for…


if (!defined('SESSION_TIMEOUT')) define('SESSION_TIMEOUT',1800);

Change the 1800 to whatever you need (I believe this is in seconds)


This is my second time that this answer by Dan was helpful. I have now bookmarked it so I don’t have to Google it next time a have a new installation of phpList.

I think a better solution would be putting the define in the config
and leave the core files alone.
