Bug #38278 session_cache_expire()'s value does not match phpinfo's session.cache_expire

I have tried setting the session.cache_expire time to 5 mins with the use of session_cache_expire(5) function... it does not work... the session will still expire after 180mins which is the default value for session.cache_expire.

Reproduce code:



echo session_cache_expire();

Expected result:
after running the code, i'm expecting that phpinfo()'s session.cache_expire's local value will be 5. And phpinfo()'s session.cache_expire's local value should match the value returned by session_cache_expire().

Actual result:
phpinfo's session.cache_expire's local value is 180 and the value of session_cache_expire() is 5

Are you sure you changed correct php.ini and restarted the web server after that?

this doesn't have to do with php.ini... i wanted to set shorter session expire time for some webpages... but, other webpages should have the default session expire time which is 180mins...

Note: (after executing the code... under phpinfo()'s session)
session.cache_limiter's local value is private
session.cache_limiter's master value is nocache

This is the expected and actual output for session.cache_limiter... which is already correct.

But with session.cache_expire, the local value is not 5 but 180, and the master value is 180 (which is the default).
