Long-running PHP processes, as a result of a poorly written script or a DoS attack, can kill your server’s resources. This is why LiteSpeed Web Server has a number of features to automatically abort these processes.
Sometimes, though, users have a process they need to run for a long time. (BackupBuddy is a prime example of this.) For these users, we’ve recently revamped our guide to disabling PHP timeouts. This guide takes you through all the features that could cause a process to end before it’s finished, and how to tweak them. If you’re trying to configure LiteSpeed Web Server to work with BackupBuddy, ImportBuddy, or any other WordPress module that relies on a WP built-in cron job, this is just the guide for you.
We’re always adding more documentation. If you have an issue or feature that you’d like to see documented, let us know on our forum.
