thanks fwabbas... I haven't been able to get anything else to work, notably ini_set("session.gc_maxlifetime","360000");
so I'm resigned to being stuck at 1440 or maintaining my own cgi/ini files
fyi - it's my understanding that DH wants you to keep an eye on the ini file too, as they may make security/performance changes that correspond to the cgi
I'm not going to go through with this for at least a month or so, so don't expect to hear back soon on how it goes...
