Reporting Troubleshooting

Last updated 4 days ago

Downloading of report shows error or times out

If you receive an error such as “An error has occured” or similar when attempting to download the CSV file of a report, it is likely due to the request taking too long to process. The error occurs when there is a lot of records in the database and it is unable to extract the records within the default timeout of 30 seconds.

There are some solutions to this problem:

  1. The cause is limited read performance on the disk, increasing disk performance by using a Raid with SSD or NVMe is a more permanent solution.
  2. Disabling Advanced Reporting on some services can also help to reduce the amount of records, especially services with lots of active listeners/viewers.
  3. Increase PHP Timeout to 300 seconds (5 minutes) to prevent the page to timeout:
    echo "max_execution_time 300" > /usr/local/mediacp/php/php.d/custom.ini;
    mediacp restart php;
