Hi All!

Can i "change session.cookie_lifetime = 0" to other value? Does it causes security problems or server load? I decide to do that because my client says that some his users, have problems with web logins, who has different timezone settings.

Someone can help me?

I'm not sure thats the best way to go. You can change it though, via WHM > Service Configuration > PHP Configuration > Advanced Mode, session.cookie_lifetime.

If you haven't yet, you might like to read this:
session.cookie_lifetime integer
session.cookie_lifetime specifies the lifetime of the cookie in seconds which is sent to the browser. The value 0 means "until the browser is closed." Defaults to 0.
You might have them check the software being used for the web login for Time Zone settings. Do you know what software is being used?

That's what I was thinking might be the case. If you have a problem with the server (or cPanel) that's one thing. If its some kind of custom script not working as it should, changing settings on the server is only going to make other sites/software not work so well that were working as they should previously.

Better to fix the script than mess with default server settings like this, IMHO.
