Configuring Iguana

Set the Config File Directory

If you are running Iguana 4.0 or later, you can specify the directory in which the configuration file is located.

This allows you to:

  • Keep all of your Iguana configuration files in a single directory structure
  • Easily test upgrades to Iguana, as you can put the test configuration file in a separate directory and roll back as needed
  • Change configuration files as necessary

To specify the configuration file directory:

  1. Stop your Iguana service if it has already been started, see Starting and Stopping the Iguana Service.
  2. Using a text editor, edit the iguana_service.hdf configuration file. This file is located in the directory in which Iguana is installed.
  3. If you are running Iguana on Windows, edit the command_line field in the iguana_service.hdf file. Use the –working_dir parameter to specify the directory containing the configuration file. For example:command_line=iguana.exe --working_dir "D:\build\v3"
  4. If you are running Iguana on Unix, Linux or Mac OS X, edit the command_line_unix field in the iguana_service.hdf file. Use the –working_dir parameter to specify the directory containing the configuration file. For example:command_line_unix=./iguana --working_dir "Users/admin/build/v3"
  5. Save the edited iguana_service.hdf file and restart your Iguana service.

Note: You will need a valid Iguana license for each working directory that you use. See Registering Iguana for more information.
