I have 20,000+ products to upload to Google Base. I’ve managed the first 6,000. But now every time I upload to Google Base (Merchant Centre) the Magento Admin tries and then says ‘Read Timed out after 10 seconds’. It uploads about 5 and then times out.
Is there a way to resolve this? Is there a ‘time out’ setting somewhere I can maybe increase above 10 seconds?
The other option is to manually upload to Google Base. I see the SingleExport extension but this is only supported upto v1.3. I am using v188.8.131.52. Is there another free extension to export from Magento into a product feed and then upload to Google Base...and the other shopping sites?
This problem has also just started to occour for me, until recently had no problems now this has come out of no where, has google changed the system perhaps? i am using 184.108.40.206 but this morning i was on 220.127.116.11 with the same problem (upgraded in the hope of fixing)
I had been having this problem too, but just tried to upload products again and it has worked ok. I wonder if maybe the servers get clogged up? I’m not very technical so thats probably a wrong guess, but all in all seems to be working now
Google base appears to be working better, i tried to re upload all my products it took 128 products the first time before the 10 second error, then it took 139 in my second go and the third go finished up adding all my products. I can only assume therefore that its some kind of problem with the google system as i have made no changes to my magento installation.
I had a similar problem recently with only being able to submit a few records at a time before the timeout message. I found out that you can increase the timeout limit in the Zend directories and thus give yourself a better chance of your items going through.
Edit the following file on your server: /lib/Zend/Http/Client.php
Locate the following line:
‘timeout’ => 10
Increase it to what you need it to be. I set it to 30 which did the job for me.
I’m very new to Magento and haven’t got to grips with it’s complexity. Therefore please do your own tests and make sure your happy with making this change. Backup, test etc.
