that hosts the course.

You will need to know to courses' internal nmae (courseid)
Let say that this is 130290a9a8b3d6fannarborl1
And is in the domain annarbor

Ther will be a file named


I.E. annarbor_130290a9a8b3d6fannarborl1.db

Inside this file is stored key value pairs that define all of the data
