i have a humor site (http://humorgalaxy.com) that feeds from the amazon database, it's been working for over a year, suddenly it's stopped working, i'm getting this error:

PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\hgchartsscript.php on line 109

but line 109 is just a bracket, since the script stops the rest of the page even normal HTML elements aren't loading. here's that part of the code

function foo()
   global $link;
   include_once $link;

(the last bracket is line 109)

i've tried reuploading a fresh version of the php script and the html page again but still the same thing happens

any ideas? would be appreciated!

big thanks

that error means your script is timing out. you can either a) go and edit your settings in php.ini to increase the timeout time, or b) more likely scenario is what ^ mentioned: maybe amazon changed something so it's not getting what it needs from amazon.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

thanks for the feedback, i solved the problem, something to do with a corrupted xlm cache i created a new cache file and redirected the script to use it instead and it worked! hurray!!!
