Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 300 seconds exceeded

In this article, we will see how to solve "Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 300 seconds exceeded".

I am getting error ` Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 300 seconds exceeded ` while importing sql file in PhpMyAdmin.
  • Error Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 300 seconds exceeded occurs when you are trying to import the large file (.sql) using phpMyAdmin. You can set value 0 for $cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] in config.default.php to avoid the error.

    File path for XAMPP

    C:\xampp\phpMyAdmin\libraries\config.default.php

    File path for Laragon

    E:\laragon\etc\apps\phpMyAdmin\libraries\config.default.php

    $cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] = 0;
    

    Find $cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] = 300; in config.default.php file and replace with $cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] = 0;.

    After updating the code save file, restart the server and import file using phpmyadmin.
