How to set session timeout in Laravel

0 votes
Is there an inherent way to setup sessions to expire after a certain time. My current setup seems to be expiring after 30 minutes and I would like to disable that or at least increase it, but I can't find any places in Laravel where this could be set?

Hello,

In app/config/session.php you have:

lifetime

option that allow you to set session expire time in minutes (not in seconds)

'lifetime' => 60,

means that session will expire after an hour.

There is also one more setting here:

'expire_on_close' => true,

that decides if session will be expired when browser will be closed.

Other settings you could get interested is also php.ini values of:

session.cookie_lifetime = 0

and

session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440

Those are default values.
