In this tutorial, we will review the second part of your Joomla website Global Configuration - the “System” settings. You will learn how to manage the Debugging, Caching, and Admin Session Lifetime settings.
In order to begin, please log in to your Joomla Admin Dashboard and navigate through the top menu bar to System > Global Configuration.
The “Global Configuration” page is where you will find the general settings allowing you to control your Joomla website.
Now that you have accessed the “Global Configuration” page, please make sure to switch to the “System” tab. You will notice it is split into few sections grouping settings relevant to different aspects of your website. In order to keep it consistent, we will review each of the settings by following the same order they are displayed and explain every setting in detail.
First is the System Settings” section under which you will see the “Path to Log Folder” field. It displays the path to the directory under which Joomla log files are stored. Please note that it is not really recommended to apply any changes to the default path unless strictly required.
Second the “Debugging Settings” section - here you will be able to control the debugging mode of your Joomla website. Note that it is NOT recommended to keep these settings for live websites. You can temporarily enable them while performing certain tests or troubleshooting.
Right below is the “Cache Settings” section.
And finally, the last “Session Settings” section, which will allow you to control your admin session duration.
As soon as you perform the desired changes, please make sure to click on the “Save” button to record them. Once this is done your job here is done and you can continue further with your Joomla configuration.
