When reloading a page, you may encounter the following error:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/html/content/core/lib/Drupal/Core/{some file .php} on line n



To resolve this issue, you need to adjust the max_execution_time parameter in the php.ini file.

Use the following command to locate your php.ini file:

php --ini

The response will be similar to

Configuration File (php.ini) Path: /usr/local/etc/php
Loaded Configuration File:         /usr/local/etc/php/php.ini

Open the php.ini file in a text editor. For example:

nano /usr/local/etc/php/php.ini

Find the max_execution_time setting. It may be set to 30 seconds by default

max_execution_time = 30

In my case this parameter wasn't set.  The parameter to change or add in the php.ini file is max_execution_time.

max_execution_time = 360

This sets the maximum execution time to 360 seconds.
Save the file and exit the text editor.
After modifying the php.ini file, restart Apache to apply the changes

service apache2 restart
