Assets - webserver/php timeouts
I've having trouble both managing my asset images in Admin and select assets for inclusion in the RTE.
I've got about 4000 images PDFs.
If I click on Assets in Admin, I eventually get a "The connection has timed out" browser error. If I click the Image toolbar icon on the rich text editor, I either get the same error or an Error 500 (website logs show a timeout for these).
I get the same problem on the live 1and1 hosted site and on my local (very powerful) testbed.
I realise that extending the php.ini timeout might fix this locally, it's not an option for the live site.
I'm guessing the PHP is trawling the assets to build a list to present.
Any suggestions on resolving this? Is there a way to cache this data to speed up the lookups?
