Xeoma settings

Sometimes, like in this case (lost password), you need to find where Xeoma stores its settings files. Xeoma settings are stored in default user directory.

For Windows it’s:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Xeoma\

For Linux:

/home/USERNAME/.config/Xeoma/ (not installed)

/usr/local/Xeoma/ (installed)

For Mac OS X:

Users/USERNAME/Xeoma/ (not installed)

Users/Shared/Xeoma/ (installed)

Please be careful: deleting settings files will erase all settings changes you applied, passwords, etc.



Autostart script for Linux
Depending on the operating system in use, autostart script can be found in:
etc/init.d
etc/init
/etc/systemd/system/

If you need to edit the script (for example, to increase delay before start) you need to do that with admin rights. Xeoma server must be off, otherwise the changes won’t be saved.

Autostart folder for Windows (if Xeoma is installed)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\XeomaCoreService

Also, here’s the path to installed Xeoma: C:\Program Files\Xeoma (you’ll find xeoma.exe file there)

Autostart script for Mac OSX
/Library/LaunchDaemons/XeomaCoreService.plist


There is a folder where client settings are stored (tabs, camera order) if the option “individual order of cameras” is ticked:

Client settings folder (Windows):
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\XeomaClient
(UserName should be replaced with the system’s user name)
Tip: search for %appdata% in the search bar to reach this folder.

Client settings folder (Linux):
/home/user/XeomaClient/user.cache
(user should be replaced with the system’s user name)
