Caution: This documentation is for eZ Publish legacy, from version 3.x to 5.x.
For 5.x documentation covering Platform see eZ Documentation Center, for difference between legacy and Platform see 5.x Architecture overview.



Sets the main directory for file storage in eZ Publish.




The directory specified by this setting is used by eZ Publish for file storage. This includes content related files, cache files and other temporary files.

The value of this setting must be the same for all related siteaccesses (those sharing the same database). This is needed for the view cache clearing subsystem to function properly. (Otherwise, it won't clear the view cache for related siteaccesses when it is cleared for the current one.)

Similarly, do not use the same VarDir setting for siteaccesses that use different databases.

Note1: Do not change the default value unless you know what you are doing.

Note2: Only directories relative to the eZ Publish root are supported. Absolute directories are NOT SUPPORTED. Bear in mind that using an absolute directory will be accepted, but it won't work with some features and is NOT SUPPORTED.



The directory "var/" is used to store files.
