PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 900 seconds exceeded (xmlparse.inc)



  • Currently running PfSense 2.4.3_1 and it seems to be having problems with xmlparse.inc and will show:

    PHP Errors:
    [29-Jul-2018 03:19:06 Asia/Manila] PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 900 seconds exceeded in /etc/inc/xmlparse.inc on line 83
    

    Our guests can still access the internet but new guests can't login to our Captive Portal and can't even load up the page.
    Does our Captive Portal which already have over 8k entries in it giving problems? Does anyone here have the same issues?

    Thanks



  • Hi, I manage to solve the problem by refreshing the Captive Portal's mac address pass list and just leaving out a few important devices. 2 days already and have not encountered the same problem. Now guests can instantly load up the Captive Portal's page and enter their credentials. Kinda thinking maybe FreeRadius is better than using pfSense's Captive Portal..

    It's a known issue but not one with a good solution at the moment.
