Export of large number of references

    Exporting (to Bibtex or ISI) works well when I choose the "Selected records" option. With "All found records" (307 records in this case) the script aborts and leads to a blank page.

    The same goes for the beta.refbase.net installation. Any suggestion? I believe the post_max_size and upload_max_filesize in the php.ini file are only relevant for upload limitations, not download… So what can I do?

    Thank you in advance!

      I see the same. RTF export of all references works. I assume that bibutils is called in the background via PHP - shouldn't the PHP-limits then "bite"? Have you tried to increase them?

      Sorry, this isn't really a help - Daniel

      Per http://www.refbase.net/index.php/Required_PHP-INI_Settings

      Please increase max_execution_time, max_input_time and/or memory_limit.  Your php error log may tell you which one(s) need to be increased.

      Thank you for your advice, I have set the following:

      memory_limit = 16Mo
      post_max_size = 12 Mo
      upload_max_filesize = 3 Mo
      max_execution_time = 45s
      max_input_time = 90s

      to no avail. And my webhost would not allow me to set these higher so I guess I'm done... :-(
