Fix 'MDB_MAP_FULL: Environment mapsize limit reached' in macOS homebrew LMDB installation [PHP7]

By default in PHP 7.3.11 lmdb database size is fixed by 1MB and no way to change it. Bug about it:

This gist provide hotfix for this behaviour. (But it may be easier to create databases in python or from another lib?)

brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies lmdb
brew update
patch /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-core/Formula/lmdb.rb < patch-brew-lmdb.rb
brew install --build-from-source lmdb

Reinstall php if it not helped.

PS: this patch also raises database readers for better use in multi-threaded mode (but readers can also be increased by changing the environment variable MDB_READERS_FULL)
