I am stuck with an error:
"<strong>Warning, your PHP configuration limits the maximum number of fields to post in a form: 1000 for max_input_vars.
Please ask your hosting provider to increase the this limit to 1318 at least or edit the translation file manually.</strong>" when I try to alter some translations on my front Office. Is it possible to increase the max_input_vars from the 1000 default to 1500 ou 2000?

Hello Andre_Sa,

Thank you for your question regarding your PHP settings. The php.ini file is where you can set limits in PHP, including the max_input_vars setting.

Here is a link to an article in our support center titled "How to update your local php settings."

It explains how to successfully modify your PHP settings, so you will know how to increase the max_input_vars setting.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

Sorry for the trouble with your php.ini setting. You will need to make your php.ini recursive for the change to be seen in subfolders. Please see the following article.

<a href=""> How can I make my php.ini file recursive ?</a>

Once you set the recursive path you should see it work.

Best Regards,
James R
