If your server is not running in safe mode(doubtful), then you nay change the max execution setting with set_time_limit() [php.net].

Hey thats exactly what I was looking for. Is it possible to customize the return message to suit my scripting needs?

You could define your own error handling rules [php.net].

If the script takes a long time to execute, perhaps the script can be broken down into smaller steps. Also, if the script is accessing a database you may look into optimizing the database. If it is the web host, look into using a server that is less crowded.

Thank you for your comments sun818, but to respond, this script connects to no database. As well its run on an apache server on my computer.
The script itself is naturally time consuming (so any simplifiction would hardly scratch the surface), without going into great detail it preforms endless tests to confirm a value, and the longer the value the longer (by multiple folds) the time will require.
I'll look into that link coopster, at first glance I dont see what I'm looking for but I'll keep trying.

You might try doing some php performace profiling [webmasterworld.com] to figure out where the bottlenecks are if it's not already clear.
