Configuration files

The configuration.php file has been moved from the root directory into the config directory. This file is no longer meant to be edited directly, but instead acts as a configuration loader.

For environment specific configuration, use the files in config/environments. By default there are development, staging, and production environments defined, but you can add as many as you need. The JOOMLA_ENV env var determines which environment will be loaded.

With this setup, we no longer edit PHP files to set the configuration variables. See the environment variables page for more information.
