When user is active (eg. writing SQL query), phpMyAdmin should avoid session timeout as this can have unpleasant results.

Use case:

  • user opens SQL page
  • user edits the SQL query for the cookie expiry or session timeout time
  • the query is lost on submission "No activity within 1440 seconds, please login again"

I think phpMyAdmin should make background keepalive requests to the server when user is doing some activity (eg. typing a query).

    Just open up config.inc.php in the root phpMyAdmin directory and add this setting
    $cfg['LoginCookieValidity'] = <your_new_timeout>;

    This won't help in case user is not submitting anything, just using an interface.
