    posts import from phpbb3 timeout


    I try to import from phpbb3, but I got errors on importing posts with this message

    Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in impex/systems/phpBB3/000.php on line 116
    I've tried several times, and it occurs on the same post number.

    Do increasing max_execution_time will resolve the issue?

    Yes, the server is timing out. I suggest using smaller batches in your import and also editing your includes/config.php file and add these lines right under the <?php line:

    ini_set('memory_limit', -1);
    ini_set("max_execution_time", "2880");
