## Config file locations
# Formats
Vikunja supports using `toml`, `yaml`, `hcl`, `ini`, `json`, envfile, env variables and Java Properties files.
We reccomend yaml or toml, but you're free to use whatever you want.
Vikunja provides a default [`config.yml`](https://kolaente.dev/vikunja/api/src/branch/master/config.yml.sample) file which you can use as a starting point.
# Config file locations
Vikunja will search on various places for a config file:

# Default configuration with explanations
This is the same as the `config.yml.sample` file you'll find in the root of vikunja.
The following explains all possible config variables and their defaults.
You can find a full example configuration file in [here](https://code.vikunja.io/api/src/branch/master/config.yml.sample).
If you don't provide a value in your config file, their default will be used.
## Nesting
Most config variables are nested under some "higher-level" key.
For example, the `interface` config variable is a child of the `service` key.
The docs below aim to reflect that leveling, but please also have a lookt at [the default config](https://code.vikunja.io/api/src/branch/master/config.yml.sample) file
to better grasp how the nesting looks like.
<!-- Generated config will be injected here -->
---
## service
### JWTSecret

Default: `:3456`
### frontendurl
The URL of the frontend, used to send password reset emails.
Default: `<empty>`
### rootpath

Vikunja will also look in this path for a config file, so you could provide only this variable to point to a folder
with a config file which will then be used.
Default: `<rootpath>`
### maxitemsperpage
The max number of items which can be returned per page
Default: `50`
### enablemetrics
If set to true, enables a /metrics endpoint for prometheus to collect metrics about the system
