FYI this is not 100% correct unless you change configuration.

Because config/session.php does not use env(“SESSION_LIFETIME”) by default, but it seems hardcoded in there.

so for those who wonder, make sure to change either config/session.php or add env(“SESSION_LIFETIME”) to this config file.

yes, it should comply with your PHP session config too, thanks for pointing this out.
