Installation and Administration

Where Are the Log and Configuration Files in Windows?

Updated: October 16, 2020

When you install Nuxeo with the Windows installer,  a "Nuxeo" folder is created in %APPDATA% (see below). This folder contains the configuration, the logs, the binaries.

On older versions, the folder can be named "Nuxeo DM"

The location of the %APPDATA% directory varies depending on the version of Windows you are using and whether you chose to install for all users or not. Here are the various locations:

  • Windows Server 2008
    • All users:  C:\ProgramData
    • One user:  C:\Users\TheUser\AppData\Roaming
  • Vista / 7
    • All users: C:\ProgramData
    • One user: C:\Users\MyUser\AppData\Roaming
  • Windows XP (deprecated and no more supported by Microsoft)
    • All users: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
    • One user: C:\Document and Settings\MyUser\Application Data

The locations of your logs and data are displayed on the Control Panel Summary tab.
