#21521 new enhancement

Audit use of set_time_limit()

Core calls this half a dozen times. The call in wp_get_http() interferes with unit tests. Unit tests will terminate 60 seconds after wp_get_http() is called. Let's justify each use of set_time_limit() and remove what we can.

wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php line @ line 174

@set_time_limit( 300 );

Changeset [11005] and ticket #7875

wp-admin/includes/update-core.php @ line 517

@set_time_limit( 300 );

Changeset [9164] and ticket #5560

wp-admin/network/sites.php @ line 97

wp-admin/network/sites.php @ line 103

set_time_limit( 60 );

This was traced back to the import of ms-edit.php in changeset [12603]
One of these came from the mu trac in changeset 860.

The second one was expanded upon in changeset 1237.

wp-includes/class-pop3.php @ line 60


wp-includes/class-pop3.php @ line 67


These are in a 3rd party library

wp-includes/comment @ line 1817

@ set_time_limit( 60 );

It came originally from comment-functions.php and I lost the trail there

wp-includes/functions.php @ line 492

@set_time_limit( 60 );

Original changeset [2416]

The first two instances from comment:3 were both introduced in [9164]. The one from wp_update_core() was moved to WP_Upgrader.

The last two instances were both introduced in [1812].

The one from do_enclose() was moved to wp_get_http_headers() and after [6390] ended up in wp_get_http().

The one from pingback() is still there.
