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:
- Stop your Iguana service if it has already been started, see Starting and Stopping the Iguana Service.
- Using a text editor, edit the iguana_service.hdf configuration file. This file is located in the directory in which Iguana is installed.
- 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"
- 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"
- 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.
