    Default Removing session data from server

    Folks,

    How can I remove session data from the server after x number of seconds of inactivity? I assume the solution would use the session_gc() function.

    The session destroy() function can be used to end a PHP session. This function doesn't need any arguments, and all the session variables can be deleted with a single call. If you only want to get rid of a single session variable, you can use the unset() function.

    Thank you, but neither unset() nor destroy() satisfy my needs. I want session data to not disappear immediately but, rather, upon passage of a defined period of inactivity. I suspect a gc (garbage collection) function is needed.
