    I am getting the following error with my XenForo install:
    [COLOR=#141414][FONT=Consolas]parse_str(): Input variables exceeded 1000. To increase the limit change max_input_vars in php.ini.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    Would it be possible to increase the: max_input_vars to, say 2000?
    That would be great.

    That's strange, I managed to install XenForo easily with no errors :S <

    Are you using a nulled version?

    While there might be a error - after the current system update - in the size of that limit - it is set for all accounts on your server
    UPDATE: I do not think it is a error - my "Premium" account has PHP [ max_input_vars ] set to 1000

    IMO x10hosting will not change it

    It is a setting in PHP - starting with verson 5.3.9 - called max_input_vars, which limits the number of input variables that can be created at a particular array level. It defaults to 1000 which is generally more than enough.

    The setting is there to protect against a certain type of DoS attack involving hash table collisions


    If he was - his account would be terminated

    No, I am not using a "nulled" XenForo, nor did I know what it was until I google searched it.

    Wrong wording, XenForo installed correctly, but some add-ons and features require more max_input_vars to operate correctly. For example: requires at least 2000. Do they/would they change this for premium accounts?
