XF 1.4 Upgrading/Installing addons puts site offline


Well-known member
Hey there.

I know this isn't the section for addons, but this problem is for every addon I upgrade/install, so I figure it's more to do with my XenForo installation.
Every time I update/install/uninstall an addon, the forum goes offline and I have to manually continue the rebuild process.
I thought this was only with Chris D's installer, but the old fashioned upload/import xml method produces this too.

any ideas?

The more styles and add-ons you have, the longer the rebuild will take.

A more powerful server will complete the task more quickly but you may still have to tune it to increase the timeout values.

The forum is on it's own dedicated with RAID 1 drives and an E3-1230.
Are you talking about max_execution_time?
