Increase PHP Max Execution Time Limit with ini_set

PHP's default execution time limit is 30 seconds. It is tendered time but it not enough for all times especially when we working through long files or long precessing events. We needs to increase the PHP's max execution time limit to do this script run. There are two ways to do this. Onc is to edit the php.ini file and change the max_execution_time value(integers in seconds). But it is not possible for the all time because shared host-tings do not allows users to edit directly php.ini file. There is another way to do this via ini_set function. Let's see how...

ini_set('max_execution_time', 600); //600 seconds = 10 minutes

You can change time value as you want and put this line in the top of PHP script to make it working.
