Modify the phpMyAdmin script execution time

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

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): /opt/bitnami/phpmyadmin/
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/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.
