    Cannot see umbraco.config

    Hi,

    I am using v7.3.4 of Umbraco and I cannot see the umbraco.config file in my App_data folder. My web.config contains the following

    <add key="umbracoContentXMLUseLocalTemp" value="false" />
    <add key="umbracoContentXML" value="~/App_Data/TEMP/umbraco.config" />
    <add key="umbracoDebugMode" value="true" />
    

    Any help much appreciated.

    Poornima

    Hi Poornima

    Is this a fresh install of Umbraco? Or has it been working and now suddenly disappeared?

    Perhaps it's a good idea to double check that permissions have been setup properly so Umbraco is allowed to write and update the umbraco.config file when content is published?

    Is it happening locally or on a live site? If on a live site then how is that site hosted?

    Hey Poornima,

    Check your umbracoSettings.config (in config folder) and make sure that XmlCacheEnabled is not set to false. By default this should be set to true.

    <XmlCacheEnabled>false</XmlCacheEnabled>

    By the way, is this version on Umbraco you are working on been upgraded? As those keys don't exist on my version, using 7.3.3.

    I believe they may not be used anymore but I may be mistaken. They may have left in during an upgrade.

    Hi Bijesh

    They're not removed - But most defaults are just not visible in the config file - I newer versions of Umbraco a comment is added to the top of the umbracoSettings.config file explaining this - One can see the different options at http://our.umbraco.org/documentation/using-umbraco/config-files/umbracoSettings/

    That can sometimes be a bit confusing though if it's been a while since one has been working with Umbraco :)

    Bij,

    Your first comment solved the issue. This is a fresh install and I added that keys myself. I figured out that having the XmlCache Enabled to true puts the umbraco.config in App_Data folder but you can control the location using the appsetting umbracoContentXML
