Description :

The php-session package includes a cron setting to remove PHP
sessions that are no longer in use. Previously, it could expire the

cron job from removing sessions that are still actively being used,
and will only expire after the last action done in the session is
older than the number of minutes defined in /var/lib/php/maxlifetime.
