  • Why are all my mass emails failing now???

    No matter how few I send at a time, they always time out. WTH? Can anyone help? This is pissing me off.

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 120 seconds exceeded in C:\forum\admin\functions.php on line 56

    This is a server issue. For some reason the mail server is not responding in a timely manner. You'll need to contact your host about this.

      I am the host. And actually, this wasn't as much of a probem until I replaced functions.php after that recent security issue.

        Replace it? With what? An which version are you running?

          Correct me if I'm wrong, but not too long ago, there was a patched functions.php released for a security flaw. I'm running 2.3.0. I'm not interested in upgrading until I get a few other things done, so I just replaced the patched file, as was suggested.

            Can you point to the place where is was suggested to use this patchede file for 2.3.0?

              I'm trying to find the post now. It was a security issue announcement type post, with a few patched files attached for download.

              Bah...nevermind. I'm on some heavy drugs right now. (horrible back problems right now) It was the calendar security thing I was thinking of. So, that's not it.

              Any idea why this thing would be timing out? I've still yet to find anyone who can tell me which timeout the one above refers to. I've tried changing all the ones I know of, and still get the same damn error. Email works fine. Just mass email doesn't.

                This is handled by the max_execution_time setting in php.ini. However a mail server should not time out with a 120 second setting. There's something wrong with the mail server itself.

                  I wonder if my ISP has changed something in their SMTP policies? I know I haven't changed anything. I'll have to call and see.
