Hello Gerald and thanks for the info
So cache time will start some kind of job and lowering it too much would
bose some stressing on servers and network ?
what would a reasonable value for that param ?
Actually I've set it at 3600, but as users are blaming for new password to
be accepted too slowly... I was planning to lower it at 60...
Would it be advisable ?
