Deployment large file upload fails after 60 seconds


This article is also available in our new Knowledge Base: Deployment large file upload fails after 60 seconds


When trying to upload a large library or application .zpk file for deployment, if the file needs more than 60 seconds to upload, the upload halts. This message is seen in the php.log file:

PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in Unknown on line 0


Zend Server


The directive you need to change is max_input_time. You can change it in the Zend Server User Interface.

Navigate to the Configurations -> PHP tab. Scroll down to find 'Resource Limits and Tuning' on the list. Click it to expand the directives. Find max_input_time and increase it to what you need. For example, if you were able to upload more than 50% of the file before failing, then try 120, or if you were only able to upload 25%, then try 480. After changing the value, click the 'Save' button near the upper left. You will need to restart for the change to take effect.

    This article helped me track down my problem and fix it, but Zend Server 8.0.2 on the IBM i does not give an error message when uploading a ZPK. The next button just does not become active. A clear message when the upload fails would be helpful! Thank you for the article
