The application server of AI-Dash can be configured on three different files:

These files are located in the configuration folder /opt/dashpro/cnf, if you are working under GNU/Linux, or C:\ProgramFiles\AITech\AIDashPro\cnf, if you are working under Microsoft Windows.

Note that all these files are automatically generated during the installation of AI-DashPro.
