Profile export timed out due to the size


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to export a large site but the export profile  module keeps timing out due to the size of the installation its trying to export (around 1500 pages - half with body content). Is there any work around or is it worth simply duplicating the site and files without using teh export profile module?

Do you know if there is a high setting allowed for timeout on this host?

If so, you may try to temporarily add a line into your site/templates/admin.php (before the controller.php)

$timeLimit = 60 * 15;   // sec * min  <= adjust to your needs


In general, you also simply can copy all files to a new location. You then will need a mysql dump too. If you have no other tool at hand, you simply can install the PW module ProcessDatabaseBackups, before you do the copy. Create a full backup from within the PW admin, before you copy the files. The backup can be found under site/assets/backups/ database/...
