When i am working with Sessions in Classic ASP, I checked that session variables are not destroying after the session TIMEOUT. Below is my Code

ASP Code

Dim sessid, Uname
Session.Timeout = 1
uname= Session("Uname")
Response.Write("The timeout is:" & Session.Timeout)


<!DOCTYPE html>
	<h1> user Login form</h2>
	<form method="post" action="vbscript.asp">
		<label>username: </label> <input type="text" id="uname" value="" name="uname" />
		<label>password: </label> <input type="text" id="pwd" value="" name="pwd" />		
		<input type="submit" id="login_btn" value="Login" />

Initially i set Session.Timeout to 1. After 2 minutes when i try to refresh vbscript.asp page i am still able to see the session("Uname") value same, which has to be destroyed.

Can you Clarify me on this if i am wrong about Sessions Concept. Actually I am new to Classic ASP

Hi Aryan,

It seems that you are just letting your application should expire after 1 min by setting the Session.Timeout = 1 option, fine but you are not clearing the session variable.

You should clear the session variable in Session_OnEnd method in Global.asa file.

I hope this would help you to resolve the issue.
