    70007)The timeout specified has expired php or tomcat error?

    I am coming 3rd wheel into this problem, however when the user clicks on result.php they get the following error in the:

    tail -f /var/log/httpd/ssl_error_log

    [Thu Aug 16 16:00:53 2012] [error] [client] (70007)The timeout specified has expired: Error reading request entity data

    I have googled around but still baffled on this one....

    I am under the impression it's the post size in php or tomcat related, has anyone had an error like this before?

    Sorry yes very vague and non-descriptive post however I don't know the system / software installed yet I am asked to "help" lol.

    Can anyone assist or elaborate?

    Vague questions result in vague answers

    It sounds like this result.php takes longer than what is set as "max_execution_time" in your php.ini.

    As to why: No idea.
    It might be, that this app simply takes long to produce an output.
    In this case, increasing max_execution_time in php.ini might be appropiate.
    Note the sideeffect: The client waiting takes an apache connection and therefore resources.

    It also might be, that result.php is slow or even stalled because of a slow backend.
    Maybe a DB is under high load and/or takes long for a query?

    In any case:
    Imho, only in trivial cases can someone new jump in and solve such a problem right away.
    I would request access to and documentation on
    - the server(s)
    - server setup
    - server update status
    - last server update
    - monitoring and graphing data
    - logs
    - workflow of the application
    - If you really want to make your hands dirty: access to the source code, sql schemes and indexes.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
