WordPress version 4.7
PHP version 5.3.6
Windows hosting, no cPanel
I'm trying to increase the max_input_vars to 3000. I've tried several solutions but none yet work:
I've created a php5.ini file in the root folder with the following:
file_uploads = Onpost_max_size = 256Mupload_max_filesize = 256Mmemory_limit = 256Mmax_input_vars = 3000suhosin.post.max_vars = 3000suhosin.request.max_vars = 3000
The results show up in my phpinfo and in my WordPress settings except for the last 3 commands. max_input_vars isn't even listed in the phpinfo and on WordPress reads "! *RECOMMENDED 2000".
I tried making a .user.ini file with the following:
max_input_vars = 3000
No effect. I've recycled my app pool and still no effect.
Any help is very much appreciated.
After talking with GoDaddy support, I learned this PHP configuration doesn't work on Windows servers so I switched to Linux.
