Saving and Restoring Filezilla FTP Settings and Users on a Dedicated Server

To transfer Filezilla FTP settings and users from one server to another, simply copy the Filezilla folder over to the destination server. Here's how:

1. Stop Filezilla on the origin server.

2. Copy the installation directory from the origin server to the destination server. The default installation directory is C:\Program Files\Filezilla.

3. Install a fresh copy of Filezilla on the new computer into the directory copied above. Download here: If needed, this installation step can also be done by Support.

4. Start Filezilla on the new server as normal.

5. Update IP addresses if needed.

As an alternate installation method, you may install Filezilla on the destination server first and then copy over the installation directory from the origin server.
