    I’m hosting using my own fresh apache, phpadmin, mysql, servers and I’m wondering how do I increase the Max input vars from 1000 to 2000

    Nevermind I figured it out, though I don’t quite know what it means. If you’re trying to do the same thing, open .htaccess and add : php_value max_input_vars 3000.

    However, I would really love some explanation as to what that means and what it does, as well as a suggested number to set it to.

    The PHP Max Input Vars is the maximum number of variables your server can use for a single function. To work properly with a modern WordPress theme set this value to 3000. If the value is too low, you may experience problems such as can’t save menu settings when added a lot of items there.
