Did a new Magento 2.1.1 CE install on a Hosted environment. All went well until the login into the Admin page. I get the message:
Your current session has been expired!
I tried several things. Like emptying the var/cash files and even the var/session files put in my .htaccess the lines:
php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 86400 php_value session.cookie_lifetime 86400
Not working. When I look into the php settings I can see that these are (0) so the 86400 are not applied by the server (they do not provide such services for hosted sites).
Now what can I do to get into the back-end? I asked the provider to change the settings but I am not sure they are willing to do that. So is there another solution to get into the admin page?
