    Move configuration file outside the umbraco folder?

    Hi

    Would it be possible to move the SEOChecker.config file to somewhere outside the umbraco folder?

    Or what I really need is to save the configuration options available in the SEO Checker user interface as "user data" (i.e. data that doesn't belong in source control or needs to be deployed.) Let me explain.

    We are deploying with Web Deploy, and since we are using the Umbraco NuGet Package, the entire Umbraco directory is published to live. So all the configuration changes applied using the SEO Checker UI in the production environment is overwritten each time we deploy.

    At the moment I'm exploring how to exclude the SEOChecker.config file from the deployment, but since this is a part of the Umbraco NuGet Package. This isn't a long-term solution.

    I hope I have described the problem, so you can understand our issues, and that you can provide a good long-term solution. Or you have a trick up your sleeve?

     

    Best regards

    Emil

    Hi Emil,

    Would moving the file to app_plugins folder work in that case? Sorry at the moment it is tight to the Umbraco folder without a way to change this. What I will do for a next release is to make a web.config option where you can specify the config file location. If the issue is urgent to you please send me an email support@soetemansoftware.nl then I'll send you the bits with the config option before it's officially released.

    Best,

    Richard

    Hi Richard

    Thanks for a quick reply!

    The app_plugins folder could be an option. I must admit, that I don't have much experience with deploying Umbraco 7 (which uses this folder a lot more than v6). So you could imagine that the app_folder at some point would be added to the list of folders that will be published. But I don't know, I'm only speculating :)

    I would vote for the config folder. Packages like CropUp and uSync uses that folder.

    Best regards

    Emil

    Hi Emil,

    I prefer to have the files close together therefore it was in the Umbraco folder. But I will make sure it can be changed via a web.config setting so you can put it in any folder you prefer.

    Best,

    Richard
