Configuration File Elements

The following sections describe the elements of a c-treeRTG configuration file. The configuration file is an XML file that contains two types of elements:

  • Structure Elements - These elements define the structure of the system, such as the server to connect to and any files that need special treatment. They include the <config> root element, the <instance> and<redirinstance> elements, and the <file> element.
  • Settings Elements - Each of the Structure Elements can have one or more Setting Elements, which specify the settings to be applied to the Structure Element, as explained in Settings Elements.

These elements are arranged in a hierarchy, as described in the next section, c-treeRTG Configuration File.

  • The c-treeRTG Configuration Tool - An example of a configuration file created with the Configuration Tool, which is an excellent starting point for understanding how to use the Structure Elements and Settings Elements. This tool also tests ctree.conf for correctness, so it should tell you if there is any problem with a ctree.conf you have edited by hand.
  • Note: FairCom DB is configured separately from c-treeRTG, as described in the Configuring the FairCom DB Server chapter of the FairCom DB Server Administrator's Guide. For a list of FairCom DB configuration keywords, see FairCom DB Configuration Options in the c-treeRTG V3 Update Guide.
