How to extend the Session Lifetime in Joomla

By default Joomla comes with a really low Session Lifetime setting, this is a real pain in the butt! It means endless signing in all the time unless you change it.

Let's look at how easy it is to change it. You will have to make the decision about how long a period of time you need to complete your admin tasks against the security implications of being logged in and away from your admin control panel. A sensible compromise would be 60 Minutes.

Follow the steps below.

  • Click on System > Global Configuration
  • Click on the tab 'System'
  • Scroll down until you see 'Session Lifetime' - The default setting is 15 (Minutes) change it to 60 (Minutes), or whatever you want.
  • Click on 'Save & Close'

That's all there is to it.
