How to Change max_execution_time

The PHP setting max_execution_time is the number of seconds PHP will allow a script to run before PHP terminates the script.

The best way to change the PHP max_execution_time setting for an app is to create a .user.ini file in the app's public directory.

This file should contain the following:

max_execution_time = 120

where 120 is changed to the value you need to set for your app.
