Support » Plugin: Export any WordPress data to XML/CSV » max_execution_time getting overwritten to 0

  • Resolved jodamo5


    I’ve been troubleshooting a problem on our site: Query Monitor identified that the max_execution_time is being overwritten from the setting in php.ini to a value of 0 (meaning no limit). After a lot of troubleshooting I have found that it is caused by WP All Export.

    The problematic code was in this plugin file: \wp-all-export\actions\wp_loaded.php

    $maxExecutionTime  = PMXE_Plugin::getInstance()->getOption('max_execution_time');
    	if($maxExecutionTime == -1) {
    		$maxExecutionTime = 0;
    	@ini_set("max_execution_time", $maxExecutionTime);

    The default value that is saved to the database (from the options.php file) is a max_execution_time of 0. And on the site I was working on the value in the database had been set to -1. But there is no editable field to adjust this value in WP All Export. This means that the max_execution_time is always overridden with 0.

    What is more, this code is running on every WordPress page load – rather than only running when an export is running. This seems to be a major problem.

    I have WP All Export Pro on a different site and the problem does not occur there. It is only in this free version.

    Since I’ve got a pro licence I’m just uninstalling the free version and installing the pro version on that site. But I thought you’d want to know about the problem in the free version.

    Hi @jodamo5,

    Thanks for the report!

    This is only supposed to happen on export pages. I’m going to open an internal ticket so that we can get it fixed in a future release.

    Today i found out the same issue and i was going to post it today 🙂
    Waiting for the update to be fixed! Keep up the good work WP All Import & Export guys!
