nibl69 Posted January 9, 2007 Share Posted January 9, 2007 (edited) i get this error can anyone help Seems that your server has a 10 second timeout limit for php file executions. Most servers have a 30 second limit, but yours is quite a bit shorter. Your file is most likely too large to be loaded in under 10 seconds. Go back and re-read the instruction manual, which tells you how to split your file and upload in parts. That's the only way around this. SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR LARGE STORES If your store has over 300 products, you will likely run into PHP timeout issues. The maximum time that a script can run is set in the php.ini file. The default is 30 seconds, and it seems that most people can upload about 300 items within that time. If your store is over 300 items, you must split the file before it can be uploaded. You can do this by hand, or you can use the file-splitting feature of EP. If you split by hand remember that EP expects the first row in every file to be the headers, and will throw this line out. So if you don't have headers, it's going to throw out the first row of data. To split a file with EP: Go to Admin -> Catalog -> Easy Populate Click the lower browse button and get the file you want to split. Click the button named "Upload and Split file". The file will be split into sections, each with 300 products, the last one being shorter as needed. These files will be located in the catalog/temp directory. You can download these files using the file manager tool under Admin -> Tools -> File Manager, or you can use your ftp client to download them. Upload each split file independently in the normal way described above. These new files will be saved in the /catalog/temp directory, and will be named like this: EP_Split1.txt, EP_Split2.txt, etc. If these files are still to large, edit easypopulate and change the configuration variable $maxrecs to a smaller number. This controls how many records are put into a single file when you split it. Edited January 9, 2007 by nibl69 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
