OpenCms is highly configurable. You replace many Java classes with your own implementation, you can adjust, reduce and extend OpenCms' features in many respects by just by changing the configuration.

The configuration is placed in XML files on the RFS in the file ${WEBAPP_HOME}/WEB-INF/config/opencms.xml, that includes some other configuration files placed in the same folder.

We provide an overview on the different configuration files and their purposes, and explain, from a bird's eye view, when (and how) they should be altered.

We do not provide a complete overview on all available configuration options. The topic will help you to get the general directions where you could search for special configuration options.
