Wordpress menu timeout in XAMPP

Postby mohityadavx » 24. May 2012 05:28

Hey I have been using wordpress with bold theme by elegant themes. I have installed wordpress on my local machine using XAMPP. The problem is the menu bar which I am is using has 23 items and is working fine but the problem is I want to remove one of these item from the menu but when I try to do so I am getting timeout error and hence not able to save the menu. Error is as follows:-

Code: Select all
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\class-http.php on line 1106

I posted this on Wordpress Forum and I got this Reply

That's a XAMPP issue with php timeout; ask in the XAMPP forums on how to change it in your php.ini

Please Help!

I'd disagree on that point (personally). NOT because we can't tell you how to change your php.ini.

BUT because nothing should have a 60 second timeout in WordPress (other than a file upload maybe). Would it help to make it three minutes, how about five?

C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\class-http.php on line 1106
<= I'd look at that code and see what it is trying to do, eh?

You problem likely is not rooted in the time out, but -- most likely -- in a WordPress configuration issue. Try switching themes temporarily, and see if the issue vanishes. Did you 'copy in' your Wordpress or Theme, rather than installing clean and restoring, then re-installing the theme? If so, you may have unresolved URL issues.

IF the issues goes away - then there is likely a bad URL lurking about (my guess) It probably would be best to contact the theme authors. I can't think of anything PHP should have to 'think about' for a minute on a local install.

Code: Select all
fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\class-http.php on line 1106

Never-the-less, you can try upping the limit - but I don't think that's the fix.

Look for max_execution_time in \xampp\php\php.ini - it is defaulted to 30 seconds - so I have to resume someone has edited the php.ini. :mrgreen:

max_execution_time = 30

Good Luck
