In which table are settings stored?

My testforum is using my real-life database but I have to switch off "save templates as file". Do you know the database table I have to take a look into? xf_addon is just for addons, and xf_option just defines the options :/

Is the whole xenForo data stored in one blob?

Last week I changed a setting directly in the database (and not a blob) to do something similar, I forgot if it was forum software xenforo or another one.

The setting for save templates as files is stored in xf_option but changing it there won't immediately take effect as it is cached where Rigel says (delete that row after altering the setting in xf_option)

admin.php?options/list/performance#_templateFiles

The option ID is templateFiles

The data for all options can be found in the xf_option table.

There should rarely be a need to view or modify this data directly in the database, however.
