Update to WordPress 4.7 – Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded

Locate the file [XAMPP Installation Directory]\php\php.ini (e.g. C:\xampp\php\php.ini)

  1. open php.ini in Notepad or any Text editor
  2. locate the line containing max_execution_time and
  3. increase the value from 30 to some larger number (e.g. set: max_execution_time = 90)
  4. then restart Apache web server from the XAMPP control panel

If there will still be the same error after that, try to increase the value for the max_execution_time further more.
