I read a lot of post's related with this problem, but until now any of the options are working, that's why i come here to tell my problem.
I'm making an app for android and when i was trying to make an upload i'm receiving this error:
Unknown: Input variables exceeded 1000. To increase the limit change max_input_vars in php.ini. in Unknown on line 0
I'm sending an url with GET variables to my file in server, for what i see the problem is the size of variables that it is using (i dont know why this error is happening), so i went to php.ini and change that variable "max_input_vars" per default it is 1000 and i put it to 9999, to check. So like normal after editing and saving it, i stop all the apache processes, close xampp_control_panel and start it all again (i even restart the computer twice to be certain). Try the app and same error, went to php_info() file and everything was like beggining the value was in 1000 instead of 9999. but the php.ini was like i let it, so it saved.
I search for others .ini files and nothing. I read something about .htaccess files but i dont understand that well i search for somes but dont see anything unsual.
Even with this error a file is created in host with the correct name but without size, i test with a later xampp but was worst anything happens.
My xampp is 1.8.2 and my PHP is 5.4.19
