i want to upload one pdf into my software in one of dreamhost hosted site, but always failed. So i contacted software company , they said the problem can be in max_execution_time. Could someone help me set max_execution_time to 240 seconds in web host of dreamhost with thanks?

If you have a customised PHP environment you can edit the line max_execution_time in your php.ini file. The value is in seconds and you would set it to 240 seconds like this:
