Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Yoast SEO blocking longer running process

  • Resolved Sunny Batabyal


    I have created a custom plugin, the job of which is to calls an external API to fetch data and fill in some custom tables in the WordPress database.

    This is really a long-running process (maybe over 30 minutes) and for that, I also have updated the php.ini configuration file accordingly. But somehow the process is failing in a time interval (around 240 seconds).

    While debugging this issue I found this strange thing that – the process is failing only when the Yoast SEO plugin is activated otherwise the job is finishing without any issues.

    Is there anything that Yoast SEO is blocking longer running requests?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    We can’t offer support on custom code (needed to change (core) features of our plugin). Since we don’t want to take the risk that we break your website by suggesting incorrect or incomplete code, we cannot advise you on how to make such changes or the necessary data that you might need. Maybe someone watching these forums can assist you further, but if your topic is inactive for 7 days, we’ll mark it as resolved to keep the overview.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Thanks @mikes41720 for your sincere response. Can you please let me know only one thing that is there any feature we have in Yoast SEO plugin which blocks/reinitializes any long running request?

    I will also look for help from any other watchers.

    Thanks in advance.

    @batabyalsunny There are not any features that actively block long requests. The link suggestions feature can sometimes cause longer running processes if your site has a very large amount of content .
