WordPress has an “Auto Save” mechanism, which stores your changes of a post every 60 seconds. So if you write a new post in WordPress, this is saved every 60 seconds. It’s a cool feature and makes perfect sense. Anyone who has ever lost a longer text e.g. by a system crash while writing, knows how useful an “Auto Save” Mechanism can be.
But maybe you’ll find that 60 seconds is a too short intervall. In this case, there’s an easy way to change this.
Just open the wp-config.php file and declare the following constants:
In this example, the value of the AutoSave interval is set to 180 seconds. Autosave is now performed all three minutes.
