Users logged in to the Web OPAC are being timed-out too quickly.
How can we increase the session time_out for users who are logged in?
The variable which controls the Web OPAC session time-out in v16-up is www_a_s_time_out.
This should be specified in the $alephe_root/www_server.conf file:
setenv www_a_s_time_out 600
(The number is specified in seconds. 600 seconds = 10 minutes.)
If not specified in www_server.conf, the system uses the value in the $aleph_proc/www_server file.
If you are changing this value, then consideration should be giving to also changing the meta-tags refresh value:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1200; url=&server_f_start" />
in order to synchronize them. The meta-tags value causes the current page to revert to a default, opening page.
