How to change script timeout settings? - zabersoft - 04-30-2008 02:25 AM


I thought I'd create a new thread as the other one was getting rather large and the headline no longer fit the question.

Here's the problem:

- Server is killing a slow script (it's performing a lengthy curl request) after 30 seconds. All the end user sees is a HTTP 500 error - And there is no indication of what happened in the Apache error log.

All other possibilites have been investigated however - and I am fairly certain the script is simply timing out.

What I have tried:

max_execution_time = 300

Timeout 300

and setting
curl_setopt($curl_session, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 300);
curl_setopt($curl_session, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 600);

I'm using the standard fastcgi and I have changed php ini for both php4 and php5 on the domain in question in /var/www/fcgi etc.

In addition to this I changed php.ini for mod_php just for safety sake.


Nothing I have done is working. The script still dies after 30 seconds. Also, as a side question I get this when I run phpinfo()

Configuration File (php.ini) Path /etc/php5/cgi
Loaded Configuration File /var/www/fcgi/
Scan this dir for additional .ini files /etc/php5/cgi/conf.d

Why is it using php4 ini when php5 is loaded?

Thanks! Smile
