Configuration

The RDMO application uses the Django settings module for it’s configuration. RDMO uses a file:

config/settings/local.py

which is ignored by git and is meant to contain your local adjustments and secret information (e.g. database connections). As part of the installation process config/settings/local.py should be created from the template config/settings/sample.local.py. (Most of the Django configuration you might know from other projects is located in rdmo/rdmo/core/settings.py of the rdmo package repository.)

While technically the local settings file config/settings/local.py can be used to override all of the settings in config/settings/sample.local.py, it should be used to customize the settings already available in config/settings/sample.local.py.
