I change webcomfig file of :

1.Adjust the web.config of the Central Administration site

\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\ Port_Number_of_Central_Administration — The web.config file that defines configuration settings for the SharePoint Central Administration application.

2.Adjust the web.config of the Security Token Service (STS) virtual directory

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\WebServices\SecurityToken

3.Adjust the web.config of the claims based web application

How do find web config file of Claims Based authentication ?

If I have understand your question, you are looking for the location of the web-application web.config file, right? That file is also located in the Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories folder - usually in a subfolder named after the port number assigned to the web-app. You should be able to determine which folder referes to your web-app by looking at the web site list under IIS Manager - from here opening the folder is a simple matter of clicking the explore button. See also here.

Pleave a comment if you need further detail or if I have missunderstood you question.

  • Sorry, saw this post only now. I'm not sure I have understood your question. You need to locate the web.config file for the Central Admin site ? That would be in the \Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\ Port_Number_of_Central_Administration folder, as you indicated in your question. Or are you having problems in determining what you must insert in aforementioned files?? – Hitodama Apr 18 '12 at 14:32

web.config of the Central Administration site :

IIS\SharePoint Central Administration v4\Explore \Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\ Port_Number_of_Central_Administration

web.config of the claims based web application \Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\ Port_Number_of_WebApplication

A simple way to find the web.config file it to open the IIS Manager > Sites > right click the IIS Site > Explore. A exporer window will open at the location where you will find the file.
