#1 Post by wotnow » 2010-05-13 23:39

Hi am using mac osx 10.5.8 and have bought a new macbook pro and want to transfer my settings in Site Manager. I cannot find the .xml file I have seen is the document that contains this info when I have googled it. Thanks

MacOSX: All settings are in ~/.filezilla .

THIS ONLY WORKS IF YOU HAVE AN EARLIER BACKUP: I am using a MacBook Pro/OSX 10.6.3. I updated FileZilla and lost my logins/site manager settings. I'm no Mac-wizard, but I figured there was a file that got written over somehow. SOOOO...I found this website: http://kb.iu.edu/data/ajyj.html which instructs how to find INVISIBLE FILES. Specifically, you'll need to look for the .filezilla (which is invisible). Then, copy over your filezilla.xml and sitemanager.xml FROM your backup to your new Mac (place them in the folder so that they overwrite the "new" versions). Please note I made a duplicate of my backup....just in case. Heavens, I don't remember all my logins and I have tons in that file. Then open FileZilla (I'm using 3.2.4.1). I was so happy to see my settings restored. Whew! Good luck.

By the way, BOCO is correct, all files are in ~.filezilla - HOWEVER, it is an invisible folder. You have to go through the steps to make it visible, which you can easily do using the Mac's Finder.
