Restore configuration files
The deployment process creates a backup file for each configuration file:
app/etc/config.php.bak—contains system-specific settings and is auto-generated during build if it does not exist
app/etc/env.php.bak—contains sensitive configuration data
If you encounter problems resulting from a missing or altered configuration file, you can restore them using the ECE tools
The BAK files are a product of the deployment process. If you manually change a configuration file after the deployment, your changes are not reflected in the existing BAK files.
To restore the configuration files:
- Log in to your remote repository using SSH.
List the available backup files.
The list of backup files: app/etc/env.php app/etc/config.php
