Internal server error

I am running several servers all with wordpress installed in them. When I try to update one of the plugins (Ultimate TinyMCE) which is a large wysiwyg I get an Internal server error 500. If I rerun the update several times the update eventually installs and updates. The error I get is below.

The problem seems to be “mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 31 seconds”. Where can I increase the time out to allow enough time for the plugin to download?

[Wed Dec 05 18:51:13 2012] [warn] [client] mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 31 seconds, referer:
[Wed Dec 05 18:51:13 2012] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: plugins.php, referer:



It sounds like it may be timing out during the update process.

You may just need to bump up the timeout… you can do that by going into Server Configuration -> Website Options, and in there you can change “Maximum PHP script run time”.

I might suggest making that “45” or “60”, and see if that does the trick.


Thank you andreychek

Worked perfectly.
