Increasing PHP execution time (Ubuntu 16.04 'Perfect Server')

    I've set up my server as per the 'Perfect Server' instructions and everything's running nicely.
    I'm trying to move a phpbb3 instance from a LAMP server with PHP5 to my new server with PHP7/fasctcgi.

    It seems the easiest way might be to import the database through phpbb's own interface, but it is timing out after 30 seconds.

    I followed the instructions on easyengine.io/tutorials/php/increase-script-execution-time/ (replacing php5 with php7) increasing the limits to 600 seconds but this has had no effect. The php info screen shown in phpbb3.2's admin control panel still showed a limit of 30 seconds.

    Am I missing something?

    (apologies if this should have gone in the server set-up forum)
