Found the instructions for IIS on Windows but Linux seems a bit different.
I cannot find any file by that name.
I am on Ubuntu 22.04, .NET 7 and running Umbraco 12.1.2

in the main directory what files are listed.. maybe its just hiding..
The docs moved to the site for 10+

Here are the files in my base directory
Ok folks, just figured it out.
On a Linux machine, the web.conf equivalent is appsettings-schema.Umbraco.Cms.json
found the timeout settings:
If only this has some sort of entry in that documentation page giving the name of this file

The schema is only there to provide some sort of "code completion" in IDEs that support it, changing the schema is not going to do anything. As pointed out, in your appsettings.json, add the Timeout configuration setting in the appropriate place. First screenshot shows you the completion when I start typing in VSCode and second on an updated Timeout setting. This is indeed documented in

I develop on Linux Mint and add the following to most of my sites appsettings.json files. In the Umbraco|CMS|Global section:-
Copy code
"TimeOut": "00:40:00",
        "VersionCheckPeriod": 0,
No different to Windows or Mac 😉 Extends the backoffice timeout to 40 mins and removes the annoying upgrade reminder.
