I have few very-long-executing scripts, and my max_execution_time is 5
However, when I was taking some information from plus.google.com, it took about five minutes. It all worked well but it was just time-eating proccess, after those five minutes, it died on max_execution_time limit.
My question is -> how is that possible? Is max_execution_time counted only when NOTHING happends (or for example a lot of things a lot of times (infinite loop)) ?
