I am trying to run string locator plugin to find some strings in my theme directory. but whenever i try to run this plugin, following error ocures "Warning The maximum time your server allows a script to run is too low for the plugin to run as intended, at startup 2 seconds have passed"

I have tried to increase max exeecution time for script in php.ini by going to Xampp control panel click config> php.ini .... but nothing changed. is there any other way to make this plugin work? thanks!

  • After updating the php.ini you need to restart the services (Apache and MySql). Another option is to run: <?php phpinfo(); ?> to see where and which php version is running. It could be that you are changing the wrong php.ini – user23355 Nov 22 '16 at 14:10

The author of the plugin says it this problem was fixed in release 2.0.3 . You may also check the original thread in WordPress support .


Add this code on your .htaccess file

php_value max_execution_time 300
