[Mapbender-users] Adjust your PHP parameters, if you use WMS services with many layers

We had the issue https://github.com/mapbender/mapbender/issues/414 and 
recognized a direct connection between the error that you cannot save a 
WMS instance and the number of options that you can set there.

At a specific layer you couldn't check a checkbox and the form was 
invalid (a token was not part of the form therefore it was invalid). 
However the number of checked checkboxes was the hint: If they are some 
handful higher, the form wasn't saved.

The PHP-parameter for that is the "max_input_vars". If you experience 
that problem, put it to a higher value. In my php.ini it was commented 
out and I set it to 2000. Depends a bit on the number of layers my WMS 
has. ;-)
