Where are these settings stored at. On the disk? In a database table?


Generally, configurations in administrative pages are saved into variable table.

The path admin/config/user-interface/archive is not a Drupal core path. It must have been provided by a module. If you want to get a definitive answer, you should provide more information.

  • I need to update this data but I can only do it via a sql update. I can't do it via the user interface. The form tag uses the id tag of "archive-admin-settings" but I don't see that in the variable table. – Alex Jan 27 '16 at 18:08

    Generally you can just look at the inputs @Alex. The name attribute specifically will usually correspond to the name of the variable in the DB table, assuming the form's been built with system_settings_form. The values are stored as PHP serialised strings, though, so updating them via plain SQL could be quite a task – Clive Jan 27 '16 at 18:27
