when REDIS Object caching enabled on Pagely VPS, I have pages not loading. Pagely support has informed me that the below message is generated

[26-Feb-2018 16:59:57 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in /dom18822/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/classes/utilities/class-wpml-debug-backtrace.php on line 80

As for now, object caching has been disabled to avoid this problem. Are you aware of any such issues? What should be done to solve them, such that REDIS Object caching can be reinstated again?

Thanks for contacting support. I'll do my best to help you with your question.

You need to increase the max execution time of your server. You have the following options to achieve this:

1. [Recommended] - Contact your hosting provider and ask them is there's a way to increase the 'max_execution_time' value. Maybe you can do it within the server control panel or edditting your server php.ini file.

2. Install 'WP Maximum Execution Time Exceeded' plugin. If everything is ok, it should automatically increase this limit for you.

3. Edit your .htaccess file and add this line of code:

php_value max_execution_time 300

Could you try these options and tell us if you're able to increase the server maximum execution time and fix the issue?

thanks for your answer, but I'm not sure what to do with it. Pagely support had already increased max execution time to 120 seconds, but the pages still do not load. Even if that would be the solution, surely we cannot have a page taking more than 60 seconds to load (from a usability point of view)?

This behavior is only observed for one specific page (and all its language versions). Even with REDIS object caching disabled, the problem seems to have reappeared again.

Since then, Pagely support indicated there might be a possibility of a conflict with CloudFlare caching - and bypassing that cache seems to have solved the problem for the time being (but I keep on monitoring). Are you aware of any conflicts of WPML with CF caching?

There are no known issues between CloudFlare caching and WPML. You mentioned this happens on a specific page. What's unique about this page?

In the end, it proved to be a combination of a custom post type (defined by WP Types) and visualization in a grid (The Grid plugin) that was causing problems as soon as other language versions were published. Problem was solved by elimination in cooperation with Pagely support.
