# allowAdminChanges

Type
boolean (opens new window)
Default value
true
Since
3.1.0

Whether admins should be allowed to make administrative changes to the system.

If this is disabled, the Settings and Plugin Store sections will be hidden, the Craft edition and Craft/plugin versions will be locked, and the project config will become read-only.

Therefore you should only disable this in production environments when you have a deployment workflow that runs composer install automatically on deploy.

# allowedGraphqlOrigins

Type
string (opens new window)[], false (opens new window), null (opens new window)
Default value
null
Since
3.5.0

The Ajax origins that should be allowed to access the GraphQL API, if enabled.

If this is set to an array, then graphql/api requests will only include the current request’s origin (opens new window) in the Access-Control-Allow-Origin response header if it’s listed here.

If this is set to false, then the Access-Control-Allow-Origin response header will never be sent.

View source (opens new window)

# autoLoginAfterAccountActivation

Note that drafts will be autosaved while Live Preview is open, regardless of this setting.

View source (opens new window)

# backupCommand

Type
string (opens new window), false (opens new window), null (opens new window)
Default value
null

The shell command that Craft should execute to create a database backup.

When set to null (default), Craft will run mysqldump or pg_dump, provided that those libraries are in the $PATH variable for the system user running the web server.

You may provide your own command optionally using several tokens Craft will swap out at runtime:

  • {path} - the target backup file path
  • {port} - the current database port
  • {server} - the current database host name
  • {user} - the user to connect to the database
  • {database} - the current database name
  • {schema} - the current database schema (if any)

This can also be set to false to disable database backups completely.

View source (opens new window)

# backupOnUpdate

Type
boolean (opens new window)
Default value
true

Whether Craft should create a database backup before applying a new system update.

See also backupCommand

View source (opens new window)

# baseCpUrl

Type
string (opens new window), null (opens new window)
Default value
null

The base URL Craft should use when generating control panel URLs.

It will be determined automatically if left blank.

TIP

The base control panel URL should not include the control panel trigger word (opens new window) (e.g. /admin).

View source (opens new window)

# blowfishHashCost

Type
integer (opens new window)
Default value
13

The higher the cost value, the longer it takes to generate a password hash and to verify against it.

Therefore, higher cost slows down a brute-force attack.

For best protection against brute force attacks, set it to the highest value that is tolerable on production servers.

The time taken to compute the hash doubles for every increment by one for this value.

For example, if the hash takes 1 second to compute when the value is 14 then the compute time varies as 2^(value - 14) seconds.

View source (opens new window)

# brokenImagePath

Type
string (opens new window), null (opens new window)
Default value
null
Since
3.5.0

The server path to an image file that should be sent when responding to an image request with a 404 status code.

This can be set to an aliased path such as @webroot/assets/404.svg.

View source (opens new window)

# cacheDuration

Type
mixed
Default value
86400 (1 day)

The default length of time Craft will store data, RSS feed, and template caches.

If set to 0, data and RSS feed caches will be stored indefinitely; template caches will be stored for one year.

See craft\helpers\ConfigHelper::durationInSeconds() for a list of supported value types.

View source (opens new window)

# convertFilenamesToAscii

Type
boolean (opens new window)
Default value

# cooldownDuration

Type
mixed
Default value
300 (5 minutes)

The amount of time a user must wait before re-attempting to log in after their account is locked due to too many failed login attempts.

Set to 0 to keep the account locked indefinitely, requiring an admin to manually unlock the account.

See craft\helpers\ConfigHelper::durationInSeconds() for a list of supported value types.

View source (opens new window)

# cpHeadTags

Type
array (opens new window)
Default value
[]
Since
3.5.0

List of additional HTML tags that should be included in the <head> of control panel pages.

Each tag can be specified as an array of the tag name and its attributes.

For example, you can give the control panel a custom favicon (etc.) like this:

'cpHeadTags' => [
    // Traditional favicon
    ['link', ['rel' => 'icon', 'href' => '/icons/favicon.ico']],
    // Scalable favicon for browsers that support them
    ['link', ['rel' => 'icon', 'type' => 'image/svg+xml', 'sizes' => 'any', 'href' => '/icons/favicon.svg']],
    // Touch icon for mobile devices
    ['link', ['rel' => 'apple-touch-icon', 'sizes' => '180x180', 'href' => '/icons/touch-icon.svg']],
    // Pinned tab icon for Safari
    ['link', ['rel' => 'mask-icon', 'href' => '/icons/mask-icon.svg', 'color' => '#663399']],
],

View source (opens new window)

# cpTrigger

Type
string (opens new window), null (opens new window)
Default value
'admin'

The URI segment Craft should look for when determining if the current request should route to the control panel rather than the front-end website.

This can be set to null if you have a dedicated host name for the control panel (e.g. cms.example.com), or you are running Craft in Headless Mode (opens new window). If you do that, you will need to ensure that the control panel is being served from its own webroot directory on your server, with an index.php file that defines the CRAFT_CP PHP constant.

define('CRAFT_CP', true);

Alternatively, you can set the config3:baseCpUrl (opens new window) config setting, but then you will run the risk of losing access to portions of your control panel due to URI conflicts with actual folders/files in your main webroot.

(For example, if you have an assets/ folder, that would conflict with the /assets page in the control panel.)

# csrfTokenName

Type
string (opens new window)

    'c' => ['ç', 'ć', 'č', 'ĉ', 'ċ'],
],

# defaultCookieDomain

Type
string (opens new window)
Default value
''

The domain that cookies generated by Craft should be created for. If blank, it will be left up to the browser to determine which domain to use (almost always the current). If you want the cookies to work for all subdomains, for example, you could set this to '.domain.com'.

It works by setting the height of the iframe to match the height of the inner web page, and the iframe’s container will be scrolled rather than the iframe document itself. This can lead to some unexpected CSS issues, however, because the previewed viewport height will be taller than the visible portion of the iframe.

If you have a decoupled front-end (opens new window), you will need to include iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js (opens new window) on your page as well for this to work. You can conditionally include it for only Live Preview requests by checking if the requested URL contains a x-craft-live-preview query string parameter.

TIP

You can customize the behavior of iFrame Resizer via the config3:previewIframeResizerOptions (opens new window) config setting.

# useSslOnTokenizedUrls

Type
boolean (opens new window), string (opens new window)
Default value
'auto'

Determines what protocol/schema Craft will use when generating tokenized URLs. If set to 'auto', Craft will check the config3:siteUrl (opens new window) and the protocol of the current request and if either of them are https will use https in the tokenized URL. If not, will use http.

If set to false, Craft will always use http. If set to true, then, Craft will always use https.

Constructor.

The default implementation does two things:

  • Initializes the object with the given configuration $config.
