Logging a user out after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Posted 09 November 2003 - 05:33 AM
When the user loads a page, it sets \"available\" to 1 in the database, for that user. Fifteen minutes later, that user\'s \"available\" field should be set to 0 AUTOMATICALLY. If the page is refreshed again before that time, the timer should be reset to 15 minutes.
How might I go about doing this? Or is there another way to get this effect without having to delay the execution of a query?

honesty, i don\'t think you need a database field to control this. when the counter hits 0 void the cookie or destory the session.
Err, hmm. actually, would that work if they closed the browser or navigated away?
if you are using cookies, yes, if it is set with no time limit (i.e., void when the brower is closed).
if you are using sessions, yes, in theory. the session still exists on the server until its life expires (this is set in the php.ini). however, when they close the browser they will terminate that link. navigating away--i\'m not sure.
