First it's not such a good idea to show 30k records to a browser.. If you use this script in console it's ok. I don't think that the problems comes from the data size.. check your <for>.. maybe has an infinite loop.
Anyway if the problem comes from the data size you can find out by reading only 1k records. good luck ----- Original Message ----- From: antonio bernabei To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Wednesday, April 07, 2004 11:22 AM Subject: [PHP-DB] Large Arrays in a batch procedure Hi, I have a problem. On a small lan I need to process a table with about 30000 records. The work is to apply a formula to some fields of each record and update another field of the same table. I run php on a win2000 professional system and the first approach was to make a for cycle in which I apply the formula to all records and echo the result of the formula, just to show that the work is going on. But I get into a timeout of the system after 30 seconds Which is the right approach to this type of work, let's call it batch work?
