I don't think I understand your question, but the name of the file is indeed .Xresources. If you were asking for an configuration example, here is mine:

Rich (BB code):
! URxvt

URxvt.geometry:             130x35
URxvt.transparent:          false

URxvt.visualBell:           true
URxvt.loginShell:           false
URxvt.saveLines:            2000

! Fonts
URxvt*allow_bold:           false
URxvt*font:                 xft:Noto Mono:size=10
URxvt*letterSpace:          -1

URxvt*scrollBar:            true
URxvt*scrollStyle:          plain
URxvt*scrollBar_right:       true
URxvt*scrollBar_floating:    true
URxvt*scrollTtyOutput:       false

! Perl extensions
URxvt.perl-ext-common:      default,matcher
URxvt.matcher.button:       1
URxvt.urlLauncher:          firefox

That is the name of the file.
I did it and in the terminal run:
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources and restart terminal - it works. But if I put in the command in the autostart.sh and I restart Openbox, it doesn't work.
I also and in the settings
URvxt.foreground:  #ffffff   
URxvt.transparent: true
URxvt.shading:       30
and the colour of fonts in still black.

Thank you.

Put the command in your ~/.xinitrc, just before you load your window manager.
