This is the cookie path that will be set for any users who are using cookie-based authentication.
This is the domain for which any cookies set will work. If blank, cookies will work for whatever domain accessed. If your server is www.example.com and it is also accessed via example.com or via anything.example.com you should set this to: '.example.com'
If set, the names of all cookies ('session' or 'remember') will be prefixed with this. If you are using a cookie path something like '/', you will need to set this to use more than one forum on the domain. Other programs may also try to set a "session" or "remember" cookie that would interfere with Gossamer Forum's cookies. Note that changing this value will render all cookies invalid and all users (including users who have used the "Remember Me" function) will be required to log in again.
The amount of time a user will stay listed on the "Who's Online" page. Minutes.
User sessions will time out after this number of minutes of inactivity. If a user is continually active, their session will not time out.
