Hi, i have a centos 6.5 dedicated server with plesk 11.5
i want to extend the default session timeout value of 1440 to one much longer

Inside the php settings of my domain in plesk i have added
session.gc_maxlifetime = 604800
session.cookie_lifetime = 604800
session.gc_divisor = 100

And after that restarted apache and nginx
And when i run php info or execute this

echo "gc_maxlifetime:".ini_get('session.gc_maxlifetime')."<br>";
echo "cookie_lifetime:".ini_get('session.cookie_lifetime')."<br>";
echo "gc_divisor:".ini_get('session.gc_divisor')."<br>";
$CookieInfo = session_get_cookie_params();

i can see that the values are correct, the new timeout values
are active

and however despite of that sessions continue to timeout after 1440 seconds
instead of the new value, sessions continue timing out after no activity for 20 something minutes
