    CLI: Config: Initializing the Configuration

    At some point, it might be necessary to reset all configuration entries to default values. To do this, you enter config init at the root context, or init and commit at the config context. Once you do that, all entries are reset to their factory defaults.

    Warning: Because configuration initialization resets every parameter to a default, you might want to record some entries before doing this. Specifically, engine.session.encryption_key and engine.session.initialization_vector. Those two entries are needed to maintain the correct session data for currently-active users. If these values change, you might see false positives of Session Etag Spoofing incidents and Application Cookie Manipulation incidents, because the corresponding key values have indeed been manipulated.
