The site-config.json file and what it is good for

On both web and shell boxes, we provide you with a file called site-config.json. This file contains metadata on your website; i.e. most of the information you can see on the freistilbox Dashboard, such as cluster ID, site handle, PHP version, webmaster email address etc. You can make use of its contents in your web application as well as in scripts and batch jobs run on your shell box.

The metadata file gets deployed for each site user account in the following path:


You can parse it using any JSON library.
