Opening CONF files

Did your computer fail to open a CONF file? We explain what CONF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your CONF files.

What is a CONF file?

Files that contain the .conf file extension are configuration files that are used to store the configuration and settings for a variety of different computer processes and applications. These files are usually written in ASCII and are used for user applications, operating system settings and server processes.

CONF files are commonly used in Unix and Linux operating systems. Most CONF files are saved in text file format. In some cases, if a user wants to modify the settings of an application that is being used on a computer that is running on Linux or Unix, they must modify the CONF file in order to do so.
