What is the best way (via code, e.g. in a custom module) to check if a configuration file already exists?

Comments

@Herb suggests (on Zulip) something like this:

$config = config('mymodule.settings');
if (!$config->isNew()) {

If the config has never existed before then it'll exist only as an object and have the isNew flag. Otherwise you know it existed previously.

There's probably lots of other ways too...
