Frequent automatic logging out from the administration panel

Post by sylwekb » Mon Jun 24, 2019 2:41 pm

Joomla 3.9.8, php 7.1.15
What can cause a frequent automatic logout from the administration panel? I click on anything and log out.
The session time in the configuration is set to 120 minutes and so much should last the session. It should not log out of the system during this time.

Can the following add-ons be the reason for automatic logout admin panel?
AJAX - EU e-Privacy Directive ajax
System - EU e-Privacy Directive
System - EU e-Privacy Directive Geo IP

In Global Configuration you can set the same session for both site and administrator or separate.

Do you use php or database as session storage? With php 7.x I recommend php.
