Installation Authentication Session
Last updated 9 months ago.

Ok, so I am monitoring the sessions table and Laravel keeps adding NEW sessions every time I log in or am redirected. Why isn't Laravel using the previous session that was set? I see cookies being set on my browser (Google Chrome).

Look in /app/config/session.php under session lifetime.

If it is set to zero (0) change it to 120 or something.

// 'lifetime' =>0,

// change to this
'lifetime' => 120,

Lifetime set to zero has different behaviour in 4.1 and causes the session to be recreated.

Thank you sitesense! That fixed it! Wouldn't have guessed that!
