Maximum execution time in phpMyadmin


When I try to execute (some) queries in phpMyadmin I get this error

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\phpmyadmin\libraries\dbi\mysql.dbi.lib.php on line 140

because I have a very large table (over 9 millions records)

I have edited the file C:\xampp\php\php.ini

and changed the value of "max execution time" from 60 to 1000 then restarts the PHP and still have the same error.

Any solution?

I have the same error, please go to


Look for : $cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] = 600;

You can change '600' to any higher value, like '6000'.

Maximum execution time in seconds is (0 for no limit).

This will fix your error.

For Xampp version on Windows

Add this line to xampp\phpmyadmin\

$cfg['ExecTimeLimit'] = 6000;

And Change xampp\php\php.ini to

post_max_size = 750M 
upload_max_filesize = 750M   
max_execution_time = 5000
max_input_time = 5000
memory_limit = 1000M

And change xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini

max_allowed_packet = 200M
