PHP Timeout in "libs/JSMin.php

by CaveCanem, Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 23:14 (3885 days ago)


i wanted to try Selfoss on my RaspberryPi but i cant get it work. I only get a white screen with a "Internal Server Error" that says that the maximum Execution Time is exceeded.

The Apache log file says that this happens while executing /libs/JSMin.php, but the lines are different every time (from 0 to 160).

I´ve done everything that is said in the installation instruction.
I´ve got owncloud installed, too, so actually it should work.

I also removed owncloud but that didn´t helped.

The first error i got was "Couldn´t fin "/www/favicon.ico" (selfoss is under "/var/www/selfoss/") that was a bit strange, but i just copied the favicon.ico file, but that didn´t helped as well.

has anyone any idea? thanks

Change your php script timeout in php.ini

I had the exact same issue when I updated from 2.3 to 2.6 on my Raspberry Pi. The suggestion on this page worked for me: Basically just bypass the minification. I'm sure there's a more elegant solution, but it got the job done.

yup it worked like a charm. I guess it only takes that long when you open selfoss the for first time, because now its quite fast.

Changing JSmin.php works great, what also worked is changing max_execution_time = 30 in php.ini into max_execution_time = 90

Just a longer wait (without timeout ;) also does the job on selfoss 2.7

In case you're wondering where the php.ini is located on your RasPi, have a look here:
