I was wondering how the session lifetime works for SS and how I can control that. I'm a Joomla defector and it is pretty easy to control that in J! backend

I found 2 threads from this forum, but these have no answers :

This solution is not working either... leads me to a server error... (maybe I don't use it well)

php_value session.gc_probability 1
php_value session.gc_divisor 100
php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 3600
php_value session.save_path /mnt/stor1-wc1-dfw1/123456/

I also read to disable the Form Security Tokens but I'm not sure I trust that... Opinions seem mixed.

Thank to the community
