Session timeout

    We are serving this app using NGINX are a little frustrated by the very short session time which will log the user out and loose any unsaved changes in the Campaign edit form? I have seen some Apache fixes for this but not for NGINX. Anyone know how to extend the session time to 2 hours?

    Appreciate your help.

    Side note: As I was typing this I just saw a "Draft Saved at ..." pop up. That would be such an awesome feature for Sendy. Would stop me getting shouted at and improve quality of life for many :)

    My session.cookie_lifetime = 0 which is set to expire when the browser closes. So that was not it. Our sessions were lasting about 20 mins.

    I changed the garbage collection to the following:



    session.gc_divisor = 1000 session.gc_maxlifetime = 7200 ```

    The session.gc_maxlifetime was set to 1440 which is 24 minutes as a default. Now my sessions are lasting 2 hours and no one is shouting at me!
