How to Increase the Max Execution Time Limit?

When your site executes an operation Max Execution Time means the measure of the time (in seconds) it takes to execute the single operation.

The max_execution_time can be set by modifying multiple files. They are .htaccess, php.ini, .user.ini, or wp-config.php files. You are gonna need FTP access to modify those files. You can find the credentials for your FTP access from your hosting provider.

To set max_execution_time please follow the steps given below,

1.Go to your WordPress root installation folder and locate any of these files .htaccess, php.ini, .user.ini or wp-config.php

2.Select any of the files above and Edit and paste these directive code given below,
3.Save the file.

It's better to ask the Hosting to increase this value.

Directive code

					php_value max_execution_time 300
for php.ini or .user.ini
for wp-config.php
					@ini_set('max_execution_time' , '300' );
