But if you change the User Inactive Timeout Period or the Allow Multiple Login flag then you will need to restart LAMS for the changes to take affect as these settings are cached for efficiency.
Please do not change any of the values that do not have an unless specifically told to change them!
If you wish to change the logo or colour scheme in LAMS, see Themes.
