I find it insane how fast the session expires, like 15 min or so?
I feel I am constantly kicked out. Not sure if it is new because it seemed a little less agressive by the past.

No big deal though, just wanted to share this feeling.

I haven't experienced this myself. Do you get the same results with different browsers? I'm trying to find out if this is browser-specific or OS-specific.

It's the same thing for me. I use Google Chrome. Every time I completely close out of the browser and relaunch it, I have to log in again.

From what I've experienced, the forum only auto-logs-out if you close the browser. If you minimize it instead, it should stay Logged In unless you Log Out.

As far as Google Chrome is concerned though, it could indeed play a different ball game. Chrome has a tendency to minimize all activity in whatever tab isn't currently active (thus making it a faster browser than Firefox in many circumstances), so if the forum is in a tab you're not currently viewing, the forum's code may notice that lack of activity, assume the browser is closed, and the forum auto-logs you out. So that could be what's going on.

I try hard to remember to Log Out whenever I'm not using the forum, as I can't see any hacking-related activity on the forum if I'm not viewing that tab. I know that hackers will have more access to things if you're logged in, and being a moderator only adds to that.

I am using Firefox 51.0.1
I don't use the "stay logged in" tickbox, because of the bug that makes the forum unavailable at the next login if so. Therefore I have my credentials retained by the browser and I log in for a one time instance (until I close the browser). But here I am kicked out suddenly when I am navigating this very forum or when I click "submit" to post a message... My session really times out inside my browsing instance.

I might have a try with another navigator, or clear my cache.

That checkbox works fine for me, but I do remember when I had that bug a while back. I can't remember how I fixed it, though.

Firefox and the checkbox should work, I believe that bug's been fixed.

I can't use the "stay logged in" option anymore. I had to remove my forum cookies to even view the forum. Otherwise it just shows an SQL error:

phpBB : Critical Error

Yep, this seems to happen from time to time.

I got Military's error consistently, and was never able to log in for a good four days (I was able to log in one time Monday afternoon IIRC, but it crashed again that night). Posting the solution in these forums is helpful, but if you can't even *view* the page that provides the solution ...
