Configuration file location

The application uses user-specific configuration files by default.

Default configuration path:

/home/<username>/.airdc++/

Using custom location

Version 1.4.1 or newer is required for customizing the configuration file location

Put the file dcppboot.xml inside the directory CMAKE_INSTALL_FULL_SYSCONFDIR/airdcpp/ (/usr/local/etc/airdcpp/ by default).

Example content of dcppboot.xml:

<Boot>
    <!--
    ConfigPath specifies where settings, queue and other runtime data should be saved.
    You may use the following variables, which are interpreted on a per-user basis:

    %[HOME] - User's home directory, typically /home/<username>/

    All % variables from strftime with the current time:
    http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/ctime/strftime/

    -->
    <ConfigPath>%[HOME]/airdcpp_mycustomconfig/</ConfigPath>
</Boot>
