I've got a request that can take about 1.a few minutes to accomplish, however when it will the request, it blocks the rest of the demands through the server. I am using Apache with mod_php. What's the easiest method to fix this? Thanks!

Would you use periods? If that's the case - when you haven't closed session in lengthy script, others will wait for this.

If you do not need session there constantly - you are able to close it with session_write_close()
