find /data/wwwroot/default/mantis -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Modify the  /usr/local/php/etc/php.ini file to increase the allowed size for uploads:

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
post_max_size = 16M
; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 16M

then,restart the apache

# service httpd restart

The PHP configuration file allows you to configure the modules enabled, the email settings or the size of the upload files. It is located at /usr/local/php/etc/php.ini.

There are some PHP settings that need to be sufficient to install.

e.g The values for PHP.ini below are suggested values only.

  • memory_limit – Minimum: 256M Recommended: 1G or better
  • upload_max_filesize – Minimum: 20M
  • post_max_size – Minimum: 20M
  • max_execution_time: At Least 120 Recommended: 300

After modifying the PHP configuration file, restart both Apache and PHP-FPM for the changes to take effect:

# service httpd restart

If you receive the message “Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded”.You may also like to extend the max_execution_time for PHP and you can modify it by two methods below

Method one: edit your  /usr/local/php/etc/php.ini

; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
; Note: This directive is hardcoded to 0 for the CLI SAPI
max_execution_time = 90
; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data. It's a good
; idea to limit this time on productions servers in order to eliminate unexpectedly
; long running scripts.

Method two: edit your .htaccess:

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
php_value max_execution_time 90
