Properties configured in conf/signserver_deploy.properties are used when deploying SignServer to the application server. The properties include settings used by the deployment script to find the application server, the database type to use, and other settings included in the deployment of the application.
To ensure that changes in signserver_deploy.properties and databasprotection.properties take affect, the application needs to be deployed again using bin/ant deploy. It is however not necessary to run bin/ant clean.
See the sample configuration script conf/signserver_deploy.properties.sample for available options and default values.
