Fix Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded

In WordPress, maximum execution time fatal error is seen when trying to update theme or plugins. Usually the problem occurs when a code takes a long time to run and reaches the maximum time limit set in the hosting server.

To fix the error,

1. Find your .htaccess file in the root directory, add the below line of code at the bottom of your .htaccess file and save it. The code sets the maximum execution time to 300 secs .

After saving the .htaccess file, check if the error still exists. If this doesn’t fix the issue, check the issue by increasing the maximum execution time to 600 secs

2. Create a php.ini file inside your WordPress root folder , add the following line in the php.ini file and save it.

Check your website to see if the error has gone.

3. If both of the aforementioned methods don’t fix the issue, contact your hoster for assistance.
