Dear colleagues, am new here and very interested in using Modx. I have done a new installation on my local machine. Am using wamp. However on logging in to the admin I get the following problem:
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\...\www\mysite\manager\includes\config.inc.php on line 61
Can anyone help with advice on what I can do?
Not my area of expertise so I’m guessing, but it looks like a problem with the session_start() call. The default location for session data is /tmp and if that dir doesn’t exist or you don’t have permission to write to it, PHP might hang -- generating that error.
This fixed it for me:
It started to happen after playing around with access policies. It turned out the anonymous user (logged out user) did not have enough access privileges, I learned this by loading the page logged in and logged out. Raising their web context permission from load only to "load, list, view" did it.
I am not sure if this would raise a security concern. What do you think @BobRay ?
