configuring Cumulus.ini

Post by ruggb » Thu 16 May 2019 11:53 am

Is there a dashboard in MX to use to configure the INI file for a new install?


What is the recommended way to do this besides researching 1140 entries?

If this is a total new install then you will need to use each of the items in the Settings tab and go through each item, including any sub items.
If you already have a cumulus.ini you can copy that in CumulusMX and renaming as Cumulus.ini (capital C).

Paul is right, there are only a few settings required to get up and running, and they are all set up via the user interface.
You should only need to delve into the ini file to tweak a few customisations.
