WP Times Out Quickly

DevKinsta is working well on Mac, but one thing I’ve noticed is that the WordPress session times out very quickly when editing something on site served locally. Is there a way to increase the default timeout for WP when running under DevKinsta?

Hi @rmw1221, Welcome to the Kinsta Community.

I am sorry to hear that you are having timeout issues with your local site.

I tested my local site running under DevKinsta and it isn’t timing out at all.

Can you please check if you have any PHP variables set on your wp-config.php that may affect this?

You can also set some PHP variables in the PHP.ini Editor in DevKinsta to increase the timeout session. Example below:


You can do so by clicking DevKinsta → Sites → site name in question → click the wrench icon (on the left side) → scroll down and locate the “PHP.ini Editor” .

Please try it and let me know if you need further help or have other questions.
