you have to increase max execution time in php.ini setting of your sever

ini_set('max_execution_time', 300); //300 seconds = 5 minutes

Or better I always use this function in this cases:
set_time_limit (0);

0 is unlimited in importing data services is necessary to do it or choose a good value, big enough.

Francisco Javier Carazo Gil comments:

You have to place this code before long execution problem.

If you don't know where is it placed the problem you can include it into your php.ini, look for max_execution_time and change the value which is with it.

Look at it:

I used to get this problem when I used a g form for creating sites on a multisite network. It may be what the other two stated above, but if those don't work you may want to raise the upload memory limit and see if that works, which you can do by adding this to your wp-config near the top

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '32M');
