DO NOT CHANGE ANY SETTINGS IN YOUR MOODLE CONFIG FILE UNLESS YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AS YOU COULD CAUSE ISSUES WITH YOUR MOODLE SERVER

Hopefully you will not need to do this but there will probably come a time when someone needs to change the config.php file in Moodle or you need someone to make a change in the config file.

The config.php is located at the top level of your Moodle folder structure.

Depending on your platform, Windows/Linux etc, that you are using changes how you access and edit the file.
