lxc.conf - Configuration files for LXC.


LXC configuration is split in two parts. Container configuration and system configuration. CONTAINER CONFIGURATION The container configuration is held in the config stored in the container's directory. A basic configuration is generated at container creation time with the default's recom‐ mended for the chosen template as well as extra default keys coming from the default.conf file. That default.conf file is either located at /etc/lxc/default.conf or for unprivileged con‐ tainers at ~/.config/lxc/default.conf. Details about the syntax of this file can be found in: lxc.container.conf(5) SYSTEM CONFIGURATION The system configuration is located at /etc/lxc/lxc.conf or ~/.config/lxc/lxc.conf for unprivileged containers. This configuration file is used to set values such as default lookup paths and storage backend settings for LXC. Details about the syntax of this file can be found in: lxc.system.conf(5)
