The configuration file of all scripts is a place to find valuable details for your website. Examples include the database details (username & password), domain name and many more. Each application has different ways of operating and this means that the information that you will be able to find in the configuration file will be different as well.

For Concrete5, it's very easy to identify the configuration file. What you need to do is login to your File Manager or using FTP such as File Manager to locate that file.

NOTE: Replace with your own domain name.
