#28801 Akeeba Backup for WordPress 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.

Hello Akeeba,

I get this message on a wordpress installation in the configuration wizard. However we also have Joomla sites on the same server and they don't get this warning? Host already increased the value.

Please advice what to do.


Akeeba Staff

I suspect there's something killing the process, therefore Akeeba Backup thinks there's a maximum execution timeout.
Since you already have some sites on the same server, can you please try to copy the min/max execution time and runtime bias from another Joomla one?
The engine is the same, so it should work fine.

Let me know if this works for you.
