Move FZ database to another PC

#1 Post by Mudsharky » 2021-04-16 15:29

FZ is running well on PC "A" and I want to migrate all the sites and logins to PC "B".
FZ is installed on PC "B" but of course, as a new install, no sites are populating.
Is there a file or directory I can move to the new PC to get my sites over there?
Thanks

Check out the Export and Import features from the File menu.

The path (%APPDATA%\FileZilla) is correct. Sites are stored in sitemanager.xml. Settings and last server are in filezilla.xml. recentservers.xml has QuickConnect data, bookmarks are stored in bookmarks.xml.

It's advisable to handle the directory as one and copy it over entirely.
