Magento admin session timeout solution, that really works !!

Only from admin settings is not enough for session timeout.
You must also update the settings in php.ini

Lets set the session for one year !!!

From Magento admin, got to:

Stores > Configuration > Advanced > Admin > Security

Set the value of Admin Session Lifetime (seconds) to 31536000

Now open you php.ini file and change following two values:

session.cookie_lifetime 31536000
session.gc_maxlifetime 31536000

In order to ensure that you are editing the correct php.ini, create a info.php file with the following content:


And hit that file to see all the php settings.

You can see the php.ini file path and the above settings as well.
