This information is primarily for those people who wish to edit the
configuration files directly (with an editor). Here is information about
ways to edit configuration files.
Creating a New Configuration File

Rules About Configuration Files in General
- Comments begin with a pound sign ("
#") or a semi-colon
;")in the left-most character.
- The contents are not case sensitive.
- Extra white space (tabs and spaces) will be ignored.
- One directive can appear on each line.
- Most directives can only have one entry in a configuration file. If one of
these directives appears more than once in a configuration file, the last
value will be used.
The user profile of the person starting or reconfiguring the server
must have read access to all
configuration files. The user profile of the server
does not need read access to any configuration files.
configuration commands are used to change
configuration, the user that runs them must have write access to the
configuration files, as well as the temporary (*.tmp) and backup (*.bak)
that are created by those commands.
Specific Configuration Files
The diagram below shows the relationships between file types. You can click
on the image of a file or configuration value to get more information about
it. Clicking on the image will only work if this documentation is being
accessed through a web server like Web Server/400.
