Archive configuration files

Each time you activate changes in the Administration Console using the Console's Change Center, WebLogic Server archives the previously-effective set of configuration files (including the central configuration file, config.xml).

To configure how many archive files are retained:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, under Domain Structure, select the domain name.
  3. Select Configuration > General and click Advanced at the bottom of the page.
  4. In the Archive Configuration Count field, enter the number of archive files to retain.
  5. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).


After you reach the maximum number of archive files, older archive files will be discarded. For more information, see Managing Configuration Changes.
