Script Timing out

Script Timing out

I am using Universal e mail which is working fine. However it seems to take a long time to mail out to my Database and I keep getting a message saying the Script has timed out - part way through each mailing.

Please advise how I can extend the script processing time.

In PHP you can do this with the following PHP function:

php:
set_time_limit(30);



This will reset the script time limit to 30 seconds, this is the default. You can extend this to a larger amount of time and have it at the top of the page, or you can add it in like this inside of the loop. Once in the loop it would extend the time limit of the script by another 30 seconds for each address.

Here is the php page that discusses this:
function.set-time-limit.php

Script timing out

Thanks for the reply. I am using universal e mail in ASP pages

Where do I change the timings. Is this on the page to which the Univeral e mail is added or do I have to find the script itself and change it ?

Sorry for my ignorance

Here is the same thing for ASP:

<% 
Server.ScriptTimeout = 180
%>



Just place this code anywhere on the page to increase the timeout. If you place it inside of the loop you will be updating the time allowed for each record in the loop. If you can spot the loop in the code you can place it there, otherwise it would just go at the top of the page. If you post back with a copy of your page in a zip archive I can point out where this would need to go in the page.
