I tried to import a .csv file with the name of some companies, but when I do this, it takes a long time, displaying a 504 error. Because of this I changed the http_timeout to 300, but for big instances it was not sufficient. Then, I changed for 600 the value of the http_timeout, consequently my server get down (started on 55 degrees and went around 100 degrees).
I would like to know why is taking so much time to import the data and what I could do to resolve it
What is weird is that I tested with the doctype Customer and worked with higher instance
For example, on the Company the maximum that I’m being able to import is 13 instances, while on the Customer is around 300…
No idea the reason for this
Anyway, Inserting a company record is very expensive, for every company system creates it’s chart of accounts, chart of cost centers, default warehouses etc. Hence, one company record insertion is equivalent to 100-1000 other records insertion (depending on select COA).
Try to upload in very small batches like 5-10 at a time.
