Description

In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release 2.4.37 and prior, mod_session checks the session expiry time before decoding the session. This causes session expiry time to be ignored for mod_session_cookie sessions since the expiry time is loaded when the session is decoded.

Solution(s)

  • alma-upgrade-mod_http2
  • alma-upgrade-mod_md
