Helpful wp-config.php Variables for Your WordPress Installation

, ,

The wp-config.php file has many interesting features. With this one file you can really fine-tune how your WordPress installation functions.

Many default WordPress settings may be adjusted using the ‘define‘ function. This may save you from having to download a bunch of plugins to manage similar settings. But a word of caution. They should only be adjusted if you know what you are doing.
