Please Note:

The web.config file is a configuration file used to control the IIS web server and ASP.NET modules.

web.config files are text files and therefore can be created and edited using a text editor such as Notepad.

Multiple web.config files can exist, each in its own location (directory). If no web.config file exists, you can create a new one.
