There are several timeout parameters for MySQL.

For example:

wait_timeout = 300
connect_timeout = 25

You can display what the values are by doing:

mysql> show variables like '%timeout%';

How long does it take? Check that against what PHP has in phpinfo().

PHP can set that in various ways, for example, max_execution_time in
php.ini, or set_time_limit() in the code itself.
