Subject [users@httpd] RE: [PHP-WIN] Timer in Safe Mode

I don't know what your MostStupid IIS comment is about (doesn't make sense)
but I am using Apache and it is set at 300. It dies a lot sooner than that,
maybe within a minute.

Well, only half the truth of the story. IF php is running under a web
server, whihc normlay is the case, then the webservers will also have a time
out to kill the hosting script engine. In Apache this is TimeOut, and in
MostStupid IIS one will find it to be located in a million places.

In your php.ini file there's a directive called max_execution_time (in
seconds) - so you don't have to worry about any "forever-running"
scripts - PHP will kill them if they go on past that point anyhow.

Check out the phpinfo() output if you don't have direct access to your
php.ini file - this should be sufficient.
