Akeeba Backup for Joomla!

#36510 Akeeba Backup detected that your server requires a maximum execution time that is too low to be practical. You are better off switching hosts or asking your host to increase PHP's maximum execution time and lift any CPU usage limitations from your account.

Hi, 

I run the configuration wizard and it stops and shows the message: 

"Akeeba Backup detected that your server requires a maximum execution time that is too low to be practical. You are better off switching hosts or asking your host to increase PHP's maximum execution time and lift any CPU usage limitations from your account."

I checked the max execution time using phpinfo and it is 120 seconds.

Thanks

Hello,

Configuration Wizard usually is able to detect your settings, but in some cases you still have to provide the correct settings manually.

Can you please manually set a minimum execution time of 2 seconds and a maximum execution time of 14 seconds, bias 75%?

Then try to run a backup and let me know if it's working fine.

Thank you for the fast answer.

I did what you said and I was able to do a backup.

The configuration wizard still has the problem but I suppose it will be solved in time. Maybe an update in the server or in the extension.

Thanks

Configuration wizard tries its best to guess the correct settings for your server and in 95% of cases it works successfully. In some cases you have to manually put them, but it should work fine.

Let me know if you have any troubles, maybe we will have to tweak some other values.
