py.test: how to forbid to load conftest files in upper directories

I have structure like this:


When I change directory to dir and run py.test test_my.py, my tests start with configuration, declared in the outer conftest.py (which is out of dir). Is there any way to change pytest behaviour: to load conftest-file only from the local directory?

You can set the confcutdir option to specify where pytest should stop searching for conftest.py files.
