script does not finish in one try
« on: June 03, 2019, 07:15:52 AM »
I have the script and it seems to be working correctly in crawling my site, and I have a cron job set up to automatically execute it each night, but it never completes executing in one go, I think it stops after about a half an hour each time:

Updated on 2019-06-03 04:29:39, Time elapsed: 0:29:33,
Pages crawled: 1700 (1583 added in sitemap), Queued: 328, Depth level: 6
Current page: ...

I am fairly certain it has something to do with PHP and its max execution time, but I thought that the configuration screen shows that I can set those parameters for this script:

Maximum pages:

This will limit the number of pages crawled. You can enter "0" value for unlimited crawling.
Maximum depth level:
"0" for unlimited
Maximum execution time, seconds:
"0" for unlimited
Maximum memory usage, MB:
"0" for default. Note: might not work depending on the server configuration.
Save the script state, every X seconds:
this option allows to resume crawling operation if it was interrupted. "0" for no saves

Given that I set max execution time to 0, I would not think that it would stop after 30 minutes each time.  Can you please clarify as to why this is happening?  Thank you.

you would also need to update php configuration on server side in this case (php.ini file)
