Graphileon file locations

Apart from the Graphileon application files, Graphileon stores some important files and directories in the file system. Note: the Server Edition stores all these files in the same directory as the executable file.

Persistent directory

The persistent directory contains all files that should be preserved when migrating Graphileon from one version to another. This includes config files, uploaded files and ssl files. The location of the persistent directory depends on the operating system and can be found in:

  • Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Graphileon\persistent\config\config.json
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Graphileon/persistent/config/config.json
  • Linux: ~/.config/Graphileon/persistent/config/config.json


Throughout this documentation, we mention the config.json file. This is stored in the persistent directory, under config/config.json. The file contains all configuration of database connections, log levels and other configurations.


The logs are stored in a sibling directory of the Persistent directory, called logs. The level of logging can be configured from the config.json;
