Overview of PAS for OpenEdge administration : Configuration and properties files

Configuration and properties files

The following table lists the configuration files that are located in the Progress Application Server's /conf directory. Where noted, standard Tomcat configuration files were extended to support configuration of the Progress Application Server.
Note: Although these files can be edited in a text editor, it is always safer to use a utility like config to set, add, or remove properties.
