I get this error when I click begin export for moving my SMF forum to vanilla forums. Any help on this? I believe you know my db details and the rest. It says something on line 1672 or so is disabled due to security reasons. Could you enable whatever it may be so I could finish what I am doing then disable it later.
Actual error > Error in uploads/vanilla2export.php line 1675: (2) set_time_limit() has been disabled for security reasons >
Thank you for including the actual error message right away. Knowing what you see if really important for people to be able to help you.
This particular error is caused by the maximum PHP execution time being limited to 20 seconds and it’s not possible to change or override this on your own account. If your software demands to override these settings, it won’t work here.
The best way to work around this is to install a local PHP and Apache installation (tools like XAMPP, WampServer and MAMP make that easy). Then you can transfer the website to your own computer and run the export there.
On your own computer, you’ll be able to customize the server settings any way you like. And since this is probably just a one time export anyways, I don’t think you absolutely must do this on your hosting account at all.
