-d max_execution_time

I'm writing a shell script under Red Hat 9 that will process some thousand
records from a database so it'll normally take several minutes. According
to manual I can override the max_execution_time directive using the -d
switch. However, that switch seems to be ignored:

#!/usr/bin/php -d max_execution_time=1 -q

<?
........
?>

No matter what value I write (0, 1, 9999...) the script stops after 30
seconds:

Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded

The scripts runs as root and PHP is not using safe mode. I'm probably
missing something but I can't figure out what it is. Thank you in advance
for any clue,

Can't you add set_time_limit(0) to the php script?

I guess PHP does not recognize options in the #! line
try

#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
ini_set('max_execution_time', 0);
// rest of script
?>
But php should assume max_exexcution_time = 0 when running from the
command-line. I tried

$ php -r '$x = ini_get("max_execution_time"); echo "$x\n";'
0

$ php -d max_execution_time=456 -r '$x = ini_get("max_execution_time"); echo "$x\n";'
456

You are right, it seems PHP got confused by what you say. And I got
confused because it certainly does accept the -q switch. Now it works fine.
But php should assume max_exexcution_time = 0 when running from the
command-line.


# php -r '$x = ini_get("max_execution_time"); echo "$x\n";'
Error in argument 1, char 2: option not found r
Error in argument 1, char 2: option not found r
Usage: php [-q] [-h] [-s [-v] [-i] [-f <file>] | {<file> [args...]}

I have the PHP packages bundled with Red Hat 9, it must be they are either
an older version or they are built with different options... :-?

Thank you for your help,

I think you're using the CGI SAPI. I can't test that here.

The funny thing is that I can't find any "cli" packet in Red Hat
repositories. Never mind, it works so it's fine :)

With Debian I did:

# apt-get install php4-cgi

Maybe the package name is cgi also on Red-Hat, if you want to install
it.
Anyway, glad you have it working

try using the set_time_limit(int seconds) function
