How to increase max_input_vars

Issue Summary

My app requires max_input_vars = 9000
Current limit is 4000

I am using nginx. With php.ini: max_input_vars = 9000

Warning: Unknown: Input variables exceeded 4000. To increase the limit change max_input_vars in php.ini. in Unknown on line 0

Setting in wp-config.php - did not help
