2.8.8. max_execution_time

Parameter max_execution_time sets the maximum time in seconds during which the script must fully load. If it doesn't, the parser exits the script. This mechanism helps prevent server hangs due to poorly written scripts.

Parameter value:

  • In all regular hosting tariffs it is equal to 30 seconds with the possibility of increasing up to 60 seconds.
  • In tariffs businesshosting can be increased up to 3600 seconds.
Zero parameter value in PHP settings means "use the limit of the current tariff plan".

If there is a need to regularly perform operations that require an increased execution time value, you can:

  • Consider running the required script on a schedule using the task scheduler cronfor which the execution time limit is higher.
  • If you are using a regular hosting plan, consider shifts the current tariff for one of the business hosting tariffs where the execution time limits are higher.
  • Consider the option of placing a site on VPS or a dedicated server without our administration, where the limit can be configured independently, up to its complete disabling.
