The Apache config file httpd.conf is located in the conf dir where you
have installed Apache. All Apache configuration options are there. I
think you are looking for this,

in httpd.conf
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
Timeout 300

Php config file is php.ini,
in php.ini
max_execution_time = 300     ; Maximum execution time of each script,
in seconds

Changing those setting might help you.
