Confluence reporting session expired

When editing page (old or new), after clicking Save, Confluence reports session error.

We need to click Save more than once in order to really save it.

Like Peter said on the ticket (

To increase the time to expire the session, you'll have to edit the web.xml:


The value within the session-timeout tag defines the length of time a user's session will exist, in minutes.

Then, restart Confluence. After it, if you wish to configure Confluence's internal database connection pool timeout period, please tweak the c3p0.timeout property in <YOUR CONFLUENCE HOME DIRECTORY>/confluence.cfg.xml file:

<property name="hibernate.c3p0.timeout">30</property>

This value determines the number of seconds a database connection can remain pooled but unused before being discarded. Zero means idle connections never expire.
