Hi,
  You need access to your php.ini file. In it, find the setting "session.cache_expire" and set it to 60.

You can also set this in the code:

session_cache_expire(1440); // set expire to 1440 minutes or 1 day.
session_set_cookie_params(86400); // Cookie expire after 86400 seconds, or 1 day.

You must set both of these.
