I am writing an application that has a login component. Basically I want to set the sessions to last for longer than 2 hours of inactivity. There are some forms that take users 2 hours+ to fillout, when they go to submit them, they get thrown back to the login because their session has expired. I think I need to change this setting in php.ini, but I have never done it before. I was hoping someone could share a definitive routine on how to do this before I give it an attempt. Thanks for all of your help!

Setting a session for over 2 hours is rediculous. May I suggest using cookies instead of sessions to keep track of users.
