Location of the Content Station 9 configuration files

Configuring Content Station 9 is done through the following files:

  • configserver.php file. This file is part of Enterprise Server and is used for configuring settings for all Content Station users who log in to that Server.
  • componentDefs.xml file. This file is part of Enterprise Server and controls paragraph styles, character styles, and/or CSS styles that can be applied to text in an article, as well as the article components that can be added to an article. Settings made in this file affect all Content Station users who log in to that Server.
  • WWSettings.xml file. This file is located on the same system on which Content Station is run. Configuring settings in this file only affects Content Station on that system. It is used for configuring general Content Station settings.
  • ApplicationMapping.xml. This file is located on the same system on which Content Station is run. Configuring settings in this file only affects Content Station on that system. It is used for configuring the applications that are opened when double-clicking a file in Content Station.

Tip: To edit these files, open them in a plain-text editor such as Notepad, TextEdit, or TextWrangler.

Note: When editing PHP, always use forward slashes ‘/’ as path separators, and make sure to keep the correct PHP syntax.
