Hitting the POST variable limit
Posted on 2014-03-14
I have an admin page on a site I'm maintaining that displays the contents of a database table.
each row has 50 fields, and when the table is displayed on the admin page, every field is editable
right now i have it as part of a form, and on clicking submit, the database table is updated with the contents of the fields.
My issue comes in now that there are more than 20 rows (42 actually, totaling 2100 fields).
POST limits this to 1000 "fields". I can't change the apache settings (it's hosted and they won't change it for me), and adding
php_value upload_max_filesize 12M
php_value post_max_size 32M
to the .httaccess file gives a 500 error.
Anyone have a brilliant suggestion on how to handle this?
Any suggestions that are better than that?
