The configuration file of most every website application like SMF stores the settings of its database file.

The SMF configuration file is called “Settings.php” and it is located directly in the root directory of SMF application.

You may easily find the “Settings.php” file via File manager tool in your cPanel.

In case that you may want to perform changes to your “Settings.php” file, you may use the automated script “Repair settings tool” which may be downloaded via the official SMF website, here:


With “Repair settings tool” you can repair some of the most important settings of your SMF application, such as database information and file paths and URLs.

Before using the tool, please note that generating a backup of your website’s files and its database is always a good practice.
