Increase the execution time in prestashop


Recommended Posts


I am using prestashop and developed e-commerce website. i have tried to download bulk images from admin end. but i am getting the following error

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/vhosts/befunk.co.uk/subdomains/elvi/httpdocs/images.inc.php on line 159

So i have tried to increase the maximum execution time

so i have inserted the following code in admin header.inc file in top

set_time_limit (60)

but its not working again i am getting the following error

Warning: set_time_limit() [function.set-time-limit]: Cannot set time limit in safe mode in /var/www/vhosts/befunk.co.uk/subdomains/elvi/httpdocs/admin5296/header.inc.php on line 20

Please any one help me how to increase the execution time from code itself ?

Tell your host to move away from safemod or if you can invest some money move to host where you can control php.ini and make the change there. I worst case scenario you can ask your host nicely if the can increase the execution time.

good thing you replied to a 4 year old post...

@bellini13 Don't blame people. There are some issues that still make people have nightmares.
For example, in I have this issue and that's the reason I am browsing through a bunch of threads so old.

Order message encoding (greek and other non-latin) is still an issue that keeps showing every now and then.
People are just trying to find a solution and others are trying to help.

It's like you telling "Hey Sagrada Familia is too old, why visit it instead of Camp Nou?"
