User Guide Help?

Post by Movie » Mon May 04, 2015 3:24 pm

I am trying to use the "User Guide" and I guess I am just too stupid to follow along.

I noticed my phpbb3_sessions table in the database is 585.5 MIB so I thought I would check my sessions settings it is set at 18000 seconds, not knowing what its suppose to be set at I figured I would look in the User Guide located here https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... al_config/ I tried to find the sessions setting in the user guide with no luck I used the site search and it returned "About 3,970 results" I scanned the first page the search returned and not really sure what applies to my search.

I really wish someone could develop a Mod and or Extension or BOTH that would link each option topic in the APC for example "Session length:" in the ACP to the information in the official User Manual or at least make JUST the user manual searchable so a user could search JUST the user manual for Session length:

In addition the user manual needs to be more detailed so when a user reads the user manual it does not generate more questions for users that has not been to phpbb college.

Thanks in advance.

the default setting for session length is 3600 seconds which is an hour.

you can change it to whatever you want.

you can also empty ( not drop ) the sessions table in the database to regain some space.

this will log out anyone that is currently logged in but they will just have to log in again.
