What Is Wp-config.php in WordPress

This file is one of the most important files in your WordPress installation. Without it, your WordPress website couldn’t function.

The wp-config.php file contains important  information to make your WordPress website operate, including MySQL database connection settings, WordPress salts & keys, WordPress database table prefix, WordPress language and ABSPATH (the absolute path) to the WordPress directory.

WordPress stores your database information in a file called wp-config.php.

This  file is usually located in the document root directory of your domain name.
