Have you ever encountered a message like “Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded”? This means a process on your WordPress site is taking too long and timing out.

But don’t worry, here are a few ways to fix it:

Method 1: Edit wp-config.php

  1. Locate: Find the wp-config.php file in the root directory of your WordPress installation.
  2. Backup: Make a copy of this file just in case.
  3. Edit: Open the file and add the following line:
PHP

set_time_limit(300); 

This sets the execution time limit to 300 seconds (5 minutes).

Method 2: Edit .htaccess

  1. Locate: Find the .htaccess file, also in your WordPress root directory.
  2. Backup: Make a copy of this file.
  3. Edit: Add the following line:
php_value max_execution_time 300

Method 3: Edit php.ini (Advanced)

  1. Locate: This file’s location varies depending on your hosting. Contact your host for help if needed.
  2. Backup: Make a copy of the php.ini file.
  3. Edit: Add the following line:
max_execution_time = 300

Important Notes:

  • It’s best to only increase the execution time as much as necessary. Setting it too high can impact your website’s performance.
  • If you’re not comfortable editing these files, ask your hosting provider for assistance or consider using a WordPress plugin designed for this purpose.
