Over time I have collected a bit of a list of WFS server addresses. I would like to include the list of server connections in my overall backup. Therefore, I like to know where QGIS stores the list.

Data Source Manager | WFS

  • On Windows it uses (or used to use ~ haven't checked recently) the registry. On my Linux I can see some remnant connection details for QGIS 2 /home/USER/.config/QGIS/QGIS2.conf but can't find similar settings for QGIS 3

    Try /home/USER/.local/share/QGIS/QGIS3/profiles/YOUR-PROFILE/QGIS/QGIS3.ini on Linux

For QGIS 2 on Windows it uses the registry.

For QGIS 2 on Linux (Mint) I can see some remnant connection details for QGIS 2 at:

/home/USER/.config/QGIS/QGIS2.conf

For QGIS 3 on Linux (Mint) I found the WFS settings at:

/home/USER/.local/share/QGIS/QGIS3/profiles/YOUR-PROFILE/QGIS/QGIS3.ini

For windows 10, QGIS 3 you can find the settings in :

"C:\Users\<YOUR_USER_NAME>\AppData\Roaming\QGIS\QGIS3\profiles\default\QGIS\QGIS3.ini"

In case you are planning to clean install your windows and preserve your settings (including plugins), you need to back up this folder and replace it afterward:

C:\Users\<YOUR_USER_NAME>\AppData\Roaming\QGIS
