Configuring APM Server

To configure APM Server, you edit the configuration file. For rpm and deb, you’ll find the configuration file at /etc/apm-server/apm-server.yml. Under Docker, it’s located at /usr/share/apm-server/apm-server.yml. For mac and win, look in the archive that you just extracted.

See the Config File Format section of the Beats Platform Reference for more about the structure of the config file.
