Session Settings

The Session Settings page allows the setup of various Plesk security parameters. The following parameters can be set from this page:

  • Session idle time - the allowable idle time for any session in Plesk. Should a user session remain idle for a length of time exceeding that specified as the session idle time, Plesk terminates the current session.

  • Invalid login interval - an interval between two invalid login attempts within which the invalid login attempts counter is increased. If the time between two invalid login attempts exceeds this value, then the invalid login counter is reset back to 0.

  • Invalid login attempts - the maximum number of invalid login attempts allowed. Once a user has exceeded this value, he/she is locked out for the time specified in the Invalid login lock time field.

  • Invalid login lock time - the lockout time for a user once the invalid login attempts counter has exceeded its maximum limit. Upon completion of the lockout time, the invalid login attempts counter is reset to zero and the user is again given the ability to login to Plesk.

In order to change the session's parameters, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Session Settings button on the Server administration page. The Sessions Settings page appears.

  2. To set the Session idle time, click in the field provided to the right, and enter the selected time.

  3. To set the Invalid login interval, click in the field provided to the right, and enter the selected interval.

  4. To set the number of Invalid login attempts, click in the field to the right, and enter the selected number of attempts.

  5. To set the Invalid login lock time, click in the field to the right, and enter the selected lock time.

  6. Click Update to submit your settings.

IMPORTANT

Plesk allows multiple simultaneously active sessions for the same user. This means that one or several people can simultaneously access Plesk control panel and make use of its functionality under the same login/password pair. Therefore it is important to understand that different users are likely to encounter the results of operations performed by other users. For instance, should one user change the visual appearance of the control panel (change a skin), the rest of users working under the same login will experience the same visual change as well. This is also true for all of the objects and operations available to this user. Making use of multiple simultaneous sessions must be exercised with great care.
