General Configuration

General Configuration Editor

[screenshot: Configuration]

The General Configuration Window is an editor for the Site Valet general configuration, and serves to manage all configuration variables except those fixed at installation time or managed through the MIMETypes and domains editors.

Note that an error in the General Configuration may cause Valet not to function. It is strongly recommended that this should be configured as a privileged operation.
