after changing the hosting provider (which at this point has no idea what is going on or the intention / interest to solve the problem it seems), we ran into an issue, where every php script ends after 30 seconds execution time resulting in an internal server error.
The script where we noticed this first, ran just fine on the old server, but I can imagine this info doesn't really help, so here are a few infos about the current server (settings).
Debian GNU/Linux amd64 6.0.7 (squeeze) PHP Version 5.3.25-1~dotdeb.0 Server API FPM/FastCGI
php.ini settings: memory_limit 256M (changed this from 128M to 512M ... back to 256M witout a difference) max_execution_time 180 (changed this from 30 to 60 ... 300 back to 180 without a difference) max_input_time 60
By "changed" I mean, we had to request the changes to be made, we can't do that on our own. The support guy also told me, that he was trying to set a few sohosin variables back and forth but that didn't help either. Also the php / apache error logs seem to give no clues, he said.
I am a bit confused about the MySQL version because, the cms we're running uses: mysql_get_server_info($this->connection); to show the version, which returns: 5.3.25-1~dotdeb.0. The credentials in the config file on the other hand, points to a server where phpmyadmin states that the software version is: 5.5.27 - MySQL Community Server (GPL)
I would highly appreciate if you just could point me in the right direction to solve this. If you need more information (like dpkg -l 'php*' | grep '^.i' or something), just let me know.
