Hello, I just installed the current version of WebCalendar offered on dreamhost’s one-click install page (I think that’s ver. 1.2.7, although it’s not completely clear). Although the program has installed and does run, every time I try to change the system settings for this application, I get an error message: “Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded.”
Now, most of the advice I’ve found says that the solution is to change the php.ini file to increase the execution time limit. I haven’t done that yet, in part because I can’t believe the commands I’m using are so resource intensive as to require more than 30 seconds. (I’ve tried making changes repeatedly at different times of the day, so I don’t think the servers are overloaded either.)
Other advice I’ve found suggests the problem might be with access to the /tmp file where temporary files are supposed to be stored. I can’t seem to find this directory, and I wonder if I did something on the one-click install to put it in an location that is inaccessible to the program.
I would be grateful for any insightful replies, even if the answer is, “yes, you really do have to increase the execution time limit.”
