The ConfigManager class reads configurations from folder ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration. The configuration section is stored in a file with the same name as the configuration class. The extension is .config. The file is created only if the configuration differs from the default values.

NOTE: To create the file, you can copy and modify an existing configuration file.
