How to modify the timeout on Protected Directories

    Hello Folks--

    My site is using the plesk Protected Directories feature (using .htaccess files and such) to limit access to some data.

    However, the timeout for this seems to be set fairly low by default.
    Every time our users visit the site, they are forced to re-enter their login credentials.

    Is there a way to modify this timeout to a greater time (1 week would be ideal),
    so that users do not need to re-enter the info every time.

    I am not sure if htis can be done with the httpd.include or http.conf file, or somewhere else,
    there is certainly nowhere in the plesk console to modify this.

    Thanks ahead of time for your help.
