My computer recently died. I hosted my personal-learning MediaWiki within uniform server to help guard against this type of problem for years (thanks!) - so I simply pulled the files across to the new computer....

  • Uniform server ran fine with the browser showing the home page of localhost.
  • When I pointed it to my wiki, the browser sat "Waiting for localhost..." then finally returned:
    HTTP ERROR 500
  • Looking into the Apache Error Log, I saw:
    PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\\Users\\Kevin\\Documents\\USB\\Wikis\\UniServer\\www\\insightswiki\\includes\\db\\Database.php on line 459

This is the first time I've had this type of error.
Nothing has changed aside from the hardware & OS that's running this ie: I haven't changed Uniform Server and MediaWiki's settings (and line 459 doesn't look strange) with the only change being it running on a Windows 10 machine as opposed to a Windows 7 machine.

  • It's not a problem with Windows Firewall as far as I can tell (tried shutting it off, rebooting windows then running the wiki).
  • http://localhost/apanel/phpmyadmin/ runs fine and is able to interact with the DB (tables) for the mediawiki.

Lots of work and valuable information is now trapped. Help appreciated!




Uniform Server 5.5-Nano 
Apache 2.2.14 
MySQL 5.1.41 
PHP 5.3.1
