This is the directory used to store config files used in the templates. Default is ./configs, meaning that Smarty will look for the configs/ directory in the same directory as the executing php script.

Technical Note

It is not recommended to put this directory under the web server document root.


As of Smarty 3.1 the attribute $config_dir is no longer accessible directly. Use getConfigDir(), setConfigDir() and addConfigDir() instead.

See also getConfigDir(), setConfigDir() and addConfigDir().
