This problem has me stumped! I have two old classes that I can restore in a backup website with no problem, but I cannot back them up on my computer because I always get the "Fatal Error: 3000 second limit exceeded." I had the classes in my computer under EasyPHP 1.7 (before Christmas and before a reboot), and if I recall correctly, there was a file that contained "3000" seconds which I changed to "6000" seconds, and after that, the complete restores took an hour and ten or fifteen minutes, no problem.
Now, however, with both EasyPHP 1.8 and Xampp, I cannot find any file with "3000" seconds in it to change which means the number has to be GENERATED somewhere I would think, but where? What file and what variables?
To try to get past this problem, I reinstalled my old EasyPHP 1.7 to try to restore the classes but couldn't recreate the problem and solution. Also, I tried restoring the classes part by part in Xampp and got all the way to the forum essays but timed out on the last step.
And by the way, in an internet search, this 3000 second timeout problem is an old one in other scripts besides Moodle with no clear solutions anywhere!
What I would really like to do is change the 3000 seconds to 6000 seconds. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions!
