The main yate startup configuration is stored in the file "yate.conf". Please notice that "yate.conf" under Windows has to be named "yate-service.conf" if you are running it as a service or "yate-console.conf" while running the console version. In other words it has to match the executable file name or the file would not be loaded and default configuration will be applied.
The structure of the configuration files is similar to the Windows INI files. They are text files divided in sections each containing several key=value pairs:
[section1] key1=value 1 key2 = value 2 [section2] key = A very long value \ that continues over \ several lines
Spaces surrounding section, keys and values are removed - in the example above the 2nd pair in section1 has key "key2" and value "value 2".
Starting with SVN Rev. 2433 (2009-01-13) very long values (like database queries) can be broken over several lines by placing a backslash at the end of line. In the example above "key" will have a value of "A very long value that continues over several lines" - note that spaces at start of continuation lines are also removed.
If you need to have a backslash at the end of a value just add one or more white spaces (blank or tab) after it.
See modules and features documentation for other configuration options.
