When we try to upload database in Wmap server sometimes we get error like “WAMPServer phpMyadmin Maximum execution time of 360 seconds exceeded”.
A better solution here is to change the config that controls phpMyAdmin and not the php.ini file.
If you change the php.ini file you effect everything in PHP and should you write that infinite loop that we all do from time to time it will take longer to terminate your infinite loop than is sensible.
Note: If you are using the 64bit WAMPServer the base folder name will be wamp64 instead of wamp so please amend the below folder names accordingly.
So change \wamp\alias\phpmyadmin.conf. By default it will look something like this although your version of phpMyAdmin will probably be different:
Alias /phpmyadmin "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin4.1.14/" <Directory "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin4.1.14/"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride all <IfDefine APACHE24> Require local </IfDefine> <IfDefine !APACHE24> Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from localhost ::1 127.0.0.1 </IfDefine> php_admin_value upload_max_filesize 128M php_admin_value post_max_size 128M php_admin_value max_execution_time 360 php_admin_value max_input_time 360 </Directory>
To extend the maximum time limit for importing a database,make a change to php_admin_value max_execution_time parameter. You can also change the other parameters as larger databases tend to come in larger files and take longer to read as well. Example:
php_admin_value upload_max_filesize 1280M php_admin_value post_max_size 1280M php_admin_value max_execution_time 3600 php_admin_value max_input_time 3600
After doing changes restart the Apache server.
