As described in New Administration Framework, Web Server 7.0 makes it easier to manage Web Server configurations across hardware nodes in a server farm. This administration framework provides necessary services to graphical and command-line clients to manage server configurations, and to replicate configurations across nodes within data centers or server farms.
Do not edit any files under config-store directory. The files under this directory are created by Web Server for internal use.
Metadata for the configurations managed by the administration infrastructure is stored within a directory called config-store, under the root directory of the Administration Server instance. When a server is migrated, data is transferred and a configuration is created under config-store. Configuration files, applications, and other elements that are part of a configuration are stored in config-store, as are search collections if a different search collection index directory is not specified during migration (for more information, see Search). Web Server 7.0 instances are created from these configurations.
For more information about the config-store directory structure and about configuration files, see the Web Server 7.0 Administrator's Configuration File Reference. For more information about managing Web Server configurations in data centers and server farms, see the Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.9 Administrator’s Guide.
