Modifying Magento categories with more than 1000 products

Magento reads max_input_vars from the .htacess or from what was set in index.php or php.ini
If that value was not set (our installation of) php defaults to 1000. If you then try to change a category in Magento with more than 1000 products it will spit out this error:

And it will proceed to limit your category to 1000 products!

An easy fix is to add this to your php.ini

This should give you the option to have 10.000 products in one category (should be plenty usually, right?)
