  • Hi,

    is there any option to turn off Auto-Logout in 2.1.1?

    I can’t work the way i do (with multiple tabs open) and have to constantly re-login to manager. Somehow the session gets killed.
    I asked in IRC and i’m not the only one having the issue.

    running 2.1.1. in chrome.

    is there a system pref i am missing?

    thanks,
    niklas
    • If you login and use the checkbox, it should (unless you reconfigured something) set the session.gc_maxlifetime equal to the value of session_cookie_lifetime. Try setting the value of the new session_gc_maxlifetime System Setting to the same value as session_cookie_lifetime (604800 which equals 7 days), flush all sessions and try logging in again. Let me know if that resolves the issue for you or not.
      • thanks, the issue seems fixed in 2.1.3
        • Hi Guys
          With Varnish Cache running with Modx 227 The manager just keeps logging out and updating resource content can cause the Save process to hang. Any ideas what I could change in attached or elsewhere to disable session stuff in manager
          Thanks

          Ubuntu 12.04LTS, PHP 5.3.6, Modx Revo227

            This sounds like a Varnish configuration issue. The manager requires sessions and connect be cached...
