Stash config file missing

Hi ,

I just installed Stash 2.9.3 and I cannot locate the file anywhere on the server.

It's installed on a Windows 2012 box and running as a service using a local account.

The reason I am trying to locate the file is because I am unable to get Stash connected to a MS SQL database. It keeps on saying "The configuration entered is not valid..." although I have confirmed the details are correct using a .udl file. So I was going to manually enter it in the file. At the moment it's running on an INTERNAL database.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Milan,

The file isn't created until it is needed, but you can manually create it if you need. Just put it in STASH_HOME/

Here's sample content from a mysql connection:




Hi Michael,

That worked, I was able to get it connected to the database by entering the details in the config file.

Thanks for your help.


How to get the .udl file?

Any advise?

Create a blank text file and just rename it to test.udl
