I have a pure php page that is set up to run about a 100 transactions where I am adding and updating to several tables and making a call to a payment processor. Everything is working nicely.
I have done this many times on the asp/vb side. What do I need to do in order to make sure the page does not time out. Just the set time limit? http://php.net/manual/en/function.set-time-limit.php
. I would prefer to make this change in the scripting than an ini setting.
This is something that is going to be scheduled to run every night so I don't really expect any more than 100 transactions and it will probably be a lot less and I don't have to worry about this. But if I want to make sure I could run more. Any tips and gotchas to know.
This is on windows and my plan is to have scheduled task hit a vbs script that will post to the php page. Would it be best to just use CLI? Instead of hitting the vbs, just run http://php.net/manual/en/install.windows.commandline.php
