The unique config file is the properties.xml that you need to add a new JVM

-Dorg.apache.manifoldcf.configfile=<configuration file path>

This only if you are deploying ManifoldCF in an application server.
Otherwise you can leave properties.xml in your "<user home>/lcf" folder.
You can find an example of the properties.xml file in the dist/example
folder of the distribution bundle.

All the information managed by the UI Crawler are stored in a database, HSQL
by default but you can configure a Postgresql DBMS changing the
properties.xml file, for more information about all the parameters you can
visit the following page:

Hope this helps.
