  • Hello there,

    This kind of error message is indicating that your local server’s maximum execution time for PHP script is very low by default. You can increase it from PHP.ini file. Typically this file resides in C:\xampp\php\php.ini

    Find the line which contains max_execution_time. By default, it has set to 30. Try to change it to 60. Then try to update your WordPress again. If it fails, try 90 or 120.

    If you feel that you aren’t confidence enough to edit this file, fortunately there is a plugin which will help you easier to increase the script execution limit. You’ll need to install and activate the WP Maximum Execution Time Exceeded plugin.
