How do I Change the Joomla Session Lifetime?
The session lifetime setting determines the length of time before you are logged out of the administrative back-end. The default setting is 15 minutes.
- Log into the back end of your Joomla site. If you need help logging into your back end you can go here: How do I access the back end of my Joomla site?
- Click on the Site menu and then click on Global Configuration.
- Click System tab.
- Under Session Settings > Session Lifetime change the value to your desired length of time. This setting is in minutes.
- Click Save & Close
For security purposes we don't recommend setting it to a value larger than 60 minutes
