I have run server buddy on my site www.mtrnow.com. It shows a warning for PHP max_execution_time. The suggestion is >=30 seconds. Howerver, it is showing the current value at "0". The php.ini file is set at 30 seconds. I'm not sure why server buddy is not reflecting that setting. I am able to change the PHP memory limit, and it does show that change in server buddy. Images attached.

sorry, to move this again, but the ServerBuddy support forum seems more appropriate.

Hi David

The topic that Ronald has linked you to explains how ServerBuddy gets the value that is displayed. From what you say it suggests that something in your installation is over-riding the value from your php.ini. The 0 value I believe represents "no limit" but even though this is indicated as having been set it doesn't mean that the server will actually honour it, that really depends on how the server is configured. Assuming the value is set by a plugin or theme you may be able to identify what is setting it by selectively deactivating plugins/theme and see if that makes any difference. You can also look in the extended information as returned by the phpinfo function (through the button on the page) or through having a php file using that function be browseable on your site.
