How Magento creates app/etc/local.xml?
Where should I look into to get the procedure of this local.xml creation?

1 Answer 1


The local.xml file is created in the file app/code/core/Mage/Install/Model/Installer/Config.php

The creation of the file is trigger by the Mage_Install_WizardController in the function configPostAction() that calls the Mage_Install_Model_Installer::installConfig() function and this then calls the Mage_Install_Model_Installer_Config::install() function that writes to the local.xml file.
