PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time exceeded

Problem: Your PHP max execution time was exceeded and PHP quits.

Solution: Extend PHP's Runtime Configuration max_execution_time.

For security reasons try changing max_execution_time to 60 seconds first, then longer if you need it.

* Also, you'll need to change the pathing I've used as appropriate for you site / system.

Search Engine Traffic and Optimization for Drupal

  • Posted on: 17 July 2013
  • By: Michael

Drupal out of the box, properly configured, is very SEO friendly. But don't expect your 10 to 20 page site to get any significant search engine traffic. And by search engine, we're talking Google. Google routinely accounts for about two thirds of all US search engine traffic, and other than China, a significant portion of the worlds search engine traffic.

But I want Search Engine Traffic!

Absolutely nothing beats a properly configured Drupal site with significant amounts of unique, relevant, similarly topic'ed content.

If you don't want to bother with creating content, you supposedly can "hire an 'SEO guru' who will rocket your site to the first page of Google results and/or sell lots of your product through PPC." I have several problems with these statements.

Theming Drupal

  • Posted on: 16 July 2013
  • By: Michael

A site's 'look and feel' in geek speak is called a Template, a Front End Overlay, a User Interface (UI) and the User Experience (UX), or in Drupal, the "Theme." You probably already know that ...

This document offers some guidelines on when you should start theming a Drupal project, just how varied Drupal themes can be, where to find 'free' themes, and steps you can take to reduce your theming costs.

Drupal Managed Hosting (Details)

We offer managed hosting for the Drupal Content Management System (CMS).

Starting at US $400 per quarter includes hosting and quarterly non-bug fix updates.

A few reasons this might be for you

  • When your hosting firm asks, “Do you want a bash, corn or seashell?” You're wondering what a beach has to do with your hosting account. And, hey wait!, did they just ask to hit you?
  • You've already had one hosting's junior support 'specialist' take out a production site because they repaired a table without doing a backup first.
  • You don't know why "repairing a table without doing a backup first" is bad.
