What is the core concept behind the datastore directory?

Hi community,

I am fairly new to invision community. We are setting up our first community for a customer with it.
So I came across the datastore directory and was wondering what's the core concept behind it.

I see there is much information stored inside it in php files. My first question was, "why php files?"
What I also don't get is what it actually does. Is it configuration data that is stored in it? Is it more like a cache? 
What will happen if I clear the datastore directory? Will the application be broken then, or will it populate again by itself?

Is there a guide that describes more about the datastore directory?

I am happy for any helpful answer.

Thanks and kind regards!

Yes exactly, these files contain data which don't change often.

IPS will rebuild them while the next request.

 

Further details and the alternatives to the File System can be found in our guides
