Sitefinity CMS configurations are stored in .config files. By default, these files are located in folder ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/. When you have multiple Windows Azure instances or you have a Network Load Balancing with many nodes, you need to have the same configurations for all instances, since Sitefinity CMS does not handle .config file synchronization between different instances. You can store the configurations of different servers in the database. This way, all servers will use the same configurations.
NOTE: When you add or delete a language on your site, the changes are persisted on the file system, regardless the storage mode that you have configured. The changes are saved in the ResourceConfig file.
This is because languages are part of the building of the metadata source for connecting to the database. In addition, changing the languages changes the database structure and all structural changes are transferred through the deployment package
To turn on database storage for configuration files, perform the following:
IMPORTANT: You must not remove existing configuration files from the project's ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration folder, because Sitefinity CMS continues to use them to read the default values. Only new changes are written to the database.
