You do not have permission to list this directory

#1 Post by wotnow » 2020-01-13 00:18

Hi updated to Mac Catalina yesterday and ran Filezilla this morning and it asked me about letting filezilla have permission to all my directories and I paranoid like said no .. damn .. now I cant see my local files on the left panel of Filezilla interface. How do I give Filezilla permission to access my local folders. Cant seem to find it anywhere in the menus?

Thanks :)

Open your system settings, somewhere there is a page where you can grant programs permission to access various locations.

Thanks so much .. I was looking within Filezilla. As you suggested it was in my OS. New security with Mac Catalina OS. This page walked me through in 5 secs.

Code: Select all

I am having a similar issue but the posted solution does not work.

How do I enable external (removable volumes)? My other apps can see the directory, Filezilla can not. (Pro Version).

It worked before the upgrade to Catalina. I can't find any setting in security that adds a directory list to the permissions in security.

Do you have the Store version? There should be an option for granting directory permissions under the Edit menu.
