Environment configuration is provided by Symfony. eZ Platform additionally enables you to specify environments in virtual host configuration. You can configure several environments, such as production, development or staging. You can have different configuration sets for each of them.

ENVIRONMENT variable to
dev or another custom value, like in the following example:
1 2 3 4

<env_name> is the one that can be used as value of the
Those files must import the main configuration file, just like the default
This enables you to override settings defined in the main configuration file, depending on your environment (for example database settings).
