Timeout Error on saving code via Eclipse IDE

I am getting timeout error (600 secs) - limit reached when trying to save code to SFDC.


Has anyone else got this error? I can also confirm that the site is operational (checked via and not currently under maintenance



This happens constantly? Did you check whether you are using some kind of proxy in Eclipse?

I've received this error as well, and I'm slightly befuddled as SF has reported the solution to it as a delivered idea? 


(This does not happen constantly, it's just started happening.)

I started having this problem about 4 weeks agoAt that time it was intermittent, but has grown worse steadilyCurrently, I am unable to publish anything to production.

I have this problem now. And have no idea how to solve this problem :-(



I just had the same problem but I could fix it:


1. Log in to your Salesforce Developer.

2. Setup -> Develop -> Apex Classes or Apex Triggers

3. Choose the class or Trigger that failed to save.

4. Apply your changes in the web-interface and save it.

5. Refresh from Server in your Eclipse IDE


This worked for me. Now I can save again from Eclipse with no timeout.


This problem occures in different projects. In one project it can occure for other may not. And it doesn't depend on time.
