Jelastic configuration manager is a powerful tool, which allows to take control over all of the files within the particular container. This allows to easily and quickly apply some common configurations to your nodes through the comfortable GUI right in your browser, without the necessity to establish SSH connection, that may be required for some complex operations.
In order to open the configuration manager, hover over the required node and click the Config button (the one with a wrench icon).
In the middle part of the dashboard, the corresponding configuration tab will be opened.
Herein the following sections are available:
- Root (File Manager) - gives you an access to the container's local filesystem, where you can manage different settings within configuration files of your app
- Mount Points - list of folders, that are physically stored on the remote node but can be used at a current node (learn how you can mount data at Jelastic Cloud)
- Exports - list of folders, which are shared with other nodes, i.e. these files are stored locally, but are also available at the remote instances (find out more at the dedicated storage exports documentation page)
- Favorites - files and folders you’ve marked as favorites so that you have a quick and simple access to them
Note: The default list of folders and files in the Favorites list is defined by your hosting provider within the software stack template using the appropriate /etc/jelastic/favourites.conf file. Herewith, it is not editable after container creation, but you can manually change the list of Favorites via the file manager (described below).
Herewith, during creation of a JPS package, you are able to define a custom list of favourites files in the similar way, i.e. by adjusting /etc/jelastic/favourites.conf:
cmd [cp]: echo -e "[directories]\n/home" >/etc/jelastic/favourites.conf
