How to find program configuration files

There are many different programs out on the web that you can use to enhance or create your website hosted here at InMotion Hosting. Each one of these programs has one or more configuration files that may need to be edited in order to get the results you want.

The location of the configuration files are dependent upon the program as each one has its own way of doing things. Below is a list of configuration file locations for some of the programs that are available both through our Softaculous installer program and elsewhere across the web. This list can help you quickly locate a configuration file instead of having to search through each folder.

This list will continue to be updated as we run across new programs.

Note that the paths listed for each program are relative to the folder the program was installed. For instance, if you installed Concrete5 in the location of the configruation file would be whereas if it was simply installed on it would be located at
