How to increase Maximum Execution Time for WordPress


You may receive a message such as “Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded” or “Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded”. This means that it is taking to longer for a process to complete and it is timing out. There are a number of ways to fix this error.

1.Edit file  wp-config.php

Add the following to wp-config.php:


2: Edit file .htaccess

Add the following to .htaccess:

php_value max_execution_time 300

3: Editing php.ini

Add the following to php.ini:

max_execution_time = 300

4.Using a Plugin

Install and activate the WP Maximum Execution Time Exceeded plugin.

That’s all. The plugin works out of the box and increases the maximum execution time to 300 seconds.
