On a certain site, some XF operations, such as setting registered user group permissions time out with this error: Fatal Error: Maximum execution time of 120 seconds exceeded
That isn't usually a huge problem, so I increased the time out to 180 seconds. But the error still happens.
So, I go to admin->tools->phpinfo and here's what it shows for the local value...
Now, under normal circumstances I've believe that and hunt further. BUT an echo ini_get('max_execution_time'); shows 180 seconds as set for the site.
AND, running the native phpinfo() also shows 180 seconds.
So something in XF is changing that value and I'm unable to change it to a higher value.
