Question Cache and User Sessions Issue

Hello.
I have recently migrated a Joomla Kunena website to a new server and I think something is wrong with my cache/session settings.

Some users get logged out after around 15 minutes, and they cannot access the server entirely, but then after a few refreshes, it works again

My questions are:
1. What are the best cache settings to use (default)
2. What are the best cache setting on joomla to use (default)

I would like to acheive that to at least have a starting point.

Thank you

Kunena 5.0.11 is not supported anymore. I'm not sure if this version still works correctly with Joomla 3.9.13. If you upgrade Kunena, do it on a test page first.

It seems it's chosen the default session time of Joomla. Joomla and Kunena session times must be set to the same time period (for Joomla in minutes and Kunena in seconds).

Thank you.
So my next steps should be:
1. Backup
2. Upgrade Kunena
3. Double-check cache settings on both Joomla and Kunena

No, the Session Lifetime must be the same.

Understood. I have made the changes and they are both now 1800 which seems to be the default.

Thank you so much for your assistance and advice. I will be upgrading Kunena and it seems the Joomla version also requires updates.

Thank you.
