Hi After some time Im having a very serius problem, while logged in users interact with the website they are logged out without any reason.

For example, I log in, then I interact some minutes with the website, then for example I try to access to create an article (or whatever) then I get an access denied because I was logged out automatically, I do not know why...

Any idea?

  • Is your site behind a load balancer, reverse proxy, or something similar? Are you using alternate cache storage (like memcache)?

There are some settings regarding cookie session lifetime in the settings.php file. These settings might not be allowed for overwriting and your server might have its own rules.

 ini_set('session.cookie_lifetime', 2000000);
 ini_set('session.gc_maxlifetime', 200000);

Check admin/reports/status/php.
