When selecting a lot of permissions, vanilla won't update any roles/categories [RESOLVED]

edited March 2018 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

So on my forum we have around a 100(+) roles; since we use it for a game that has many 'small groups'. Now we recently updated to vanilla 2.5 and it seems like when I edit a category (and more than around 20 role permissions are selected), vanilla won't let me update the category permission. It'll even delete permissions (as if they weren't selected), when I edit a category that already had more than 20 roles with permissions selected. It's like vanilla just won't insert that much data into the database.

Does anyone know how I would fix this, or is this just a bug in the 2.5 version? It worked perfectly fine with the 2.3 version (even with my more than a 100 different roles).

    Update: I started testing some different things and figured out that vanilla only updates the first 50 rows. It just won't do all rows above that (so roles 50-100). Could this be a constraint by vanilla? I doubt anything in my database has changed, since I haven't changed anything myself. My host might have, but that would be a huge coincidence since it started right after I updated to 2.5.

    I figured maybe it had something to do with the utility update for 2.5. Anyone any thoughts?

    You're probably running into the PHP server's POST limit.

    Yep, that was the problem! Thanks!
