Hi to users of the uploadusers.php script for flatfile upload. We use it to pre-enrol all College users to Moodle, but this being many thousands, running it through the browser as ..../moodle/admin/uploaduser.php soon times out, and changing the timeout settings doesn't even get close.
Perhaps there's a MySQL/ODBC timeout that could be extended, but it would probably be easier not to run this batch job offline, and so not tie up an online session? I tried running on the command line - ie as ../php/php.exe ../uploaduser.php but then it tripped up at the require_login() etc calls. Is there an obvious way round this, of running .php code directly on the server without being logged in to a Moodle session? ie so this could be run as an overnight scheduled task to keep users uploaded.
