Modify the phpMyAdmin script execution time

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

This parameter sets the timeout for Apache to run a script.

  • Modify the following option in the php.ini file:

      max_execution_time = 120
  • Modify the ExecTimeLimit value in the phpMyAdmin configuration file:

    NOTE: Depending on your installation type, you can find the phpMyAdmin configuration in the following locations:

    • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): installdir/phpmyadmin/
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): installdir/apps/phpmyadmin/htdocs/
      $cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] = 120;

To set this execution timeout to be unlimited (apply this value only if really necessary), set the time limit to 0 in both cases.
