Script Time Out Errors with MySql Database Hosting in Window Server Environment
Posted on 2004-04-30
I am using a shopping cart script that is in asp. I use MySQL database as the back-end. The cart and database is hosted in a Windows 2K server environment with a webhosting company.
The problem I am having is that when I do a search, the script would timed out with the ASP Error '0113' code. The only way to resolve this at the moment is to add a line of code Server.ScriptTimeout=240 in the asp page. However, by adding this line of code, although the search works, but it takes more than 5 minutes just to generate a simple one item search.
So far this is the only suggestion and solution provided by the webhosting company and from the developer of the shopping cart. As you can see this is not acceptable by anymeans for an ecommerce site!
Can anybody tell me what's causing the first problem of timing out? Is it because the webhost provider has not configure it's server correctly or is it because of the MySql database not responding very good when it's hosted in a Window server?
What is another solution in order to get this fix?
