SiteMonitor in General Add-Ons Support Posted June 18, 2010 · Edited June 18, 2010 by purplemartinart There is a command in the code to extend the time limit that will work in some situations. However, it won't work if your server is in safe mode so you may want to check with your host to see if that is the case. Many hosts will turn it off when asked. You can also try placing sleep commands in-between the various sections. For example, in admin/includes/functions/sitemonitor.php, find this line /************** SEE IF THERE ARE ANY NEW FILES ****************/ and add this before it sleep(100); where 100 is 100 seconds. You can use any number you want. That will work on some servers but not on others - worth a try though. However, if it works and you have a bunch of them in the file so that it takes 10 minutes, for example, to complete, that is a ten minute window for a hacker to make changes that might go unnoticed. Probably very unlikely but something to be aware of. I am getting a similar fatal error when I click on delete reference file or execute site monitor...strangely, manually check for hacked files works, so I have been using that. The error I get is: Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/html/DantGo2/includes/functions/sitemonitor_functions.php on line 780 But as you see, the error occurs on a different line as previous posters...not sure if that means anything. I also noticed there are 5 updates. Can you tell me what I should do? Will getting the updates , perhaps, solve the issue. How do I go about doing the update? Thanks Jack!
