How To Set Website Session Timeout using IIS7 for ASP.NET application

Hi,I am using windows server 2008 server,I have hosted 1 site on IIS7,My website is asp.net application.Problem is its getting session timeout in 20minutes. I googled and as expert suggested I set time on ASP property of IIS and then on Application pool also i set default timeout as 60min But they asked to resetIIS,I am worried to do that because on same server public sites are hosted.I have restarted IIS but still its getting timeout in 20min.Please help.

Sudhanshu

You don't need to restart the IIS, all you need to do is to just recycle the application pool of the website that you changed unless you changed the property at the "Site" level to apply to all the applications that you have on the server.
