PHP Warning: fread(): Length parameter must be greater than 0 in setoptions.php on line 311 Error and Solution

Posted on in Categories , last updated October 20, 2012

One of my php script called setoptions.php is hosted on my new vps server. However, it is not working so I setup php error log as described here and, and I see the following warning repeated in my log file:

PHP Warning: fread(): Length parameter must be greater than 0 in /var/www/html/scripts/setoptions.php on line 311

The line no # 311 is as follows in my php script:
$fname = 'myappconfig.php';
$content = fread($fhandle,filesize($fname));

How do I fix this problem under Unix/Apache/php5 server?

Tweaking php For Maximum Execution Time For Scripts

I‘ve been trying to migrate my webblogs using Wordpress inbuilt import facility. I’ve exported current blog as a xml file and downloaded to my desktop. Next I navigated to my new blog’s admin area and clicked on Manage > Import. However import failed after importing 50-60% posts only.

I went through Apache and PHP log files and I realized that the script was timed out. How do I fix this problem under Linux / UNIX?
