AMPS Configuration Basics

The AMPS server reads the configuration file on startup. At that time, the server fully expands any environment variables in the file and fully processes any include directives in the file.

The AMPS server keeps this configuration file in memory, and this fully expanded version of the file is what is provided by the Administrative Console and Galvanometer.

Changes to the configuration file on disk after the server has started have no effect. You must restart AMPS to change the configuration.
