# ⚙ïļ Configuring

Chevereto V4 uses environment variables for configuring system level settings.

ðŸ’Ą Environment variables configured at ENV system level will override the configuration at app/env.php.

# Using app/env.php

For the most common use-case, set the system settings at the app/env.php file.

# Using ENV

This applies where system environment variables can be configured. In this case, variables are handled in a plain text format like in the example below:

CHEVERETO_DB_HOST=localhost

# Apache HTTP Web Server (PHP module)

If PHP is provided using mpm_prefork you must refer to the documentation on Apache HTTP Server environment variables (opens new window).

ðŸ’Ą You may check our real use cases at chevereto/vultr-marketplace (opens new window).

# Other setups

For these you will be running PHP-FPM (opens new window) so you can add those settings at your php-fpm.conf file.

# Application servers

For these you will be running PHP CLI so you should be able to pass those at php.ini for your CLI. You can also export those in your shell.

👉 Refer to the documentation of each application server for the best way to pass environment variables to Chevereto.

# Container

Pass the environment variables to the container run command or at docker compose layer.
