HTTP error: 500 read timeout

I use a GET shell command on a php file on the local httpd server
GET http://localhost/update.php

this file will query the local mysql DB (an update table i created) connect and update (synchronise) another mysql database on the net.

every now and then, when the transfer size is big, i get a "HTTP error: 500 read timeout" after exactly 3 min ~ 180 secs

where can i increase this limit????

i looked for the httpd.conf and it only contains a regular timeout

# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
TimeOut 300

and it is set at 5 minutes!!!

any help highly appreciated.
cheers all
