Unable to view directory on Local Site

#1 Post by ErlingS » 2019-01-08 10:22

My Local Site directory is stuck :shock: The only directory I can see in the local site window is the directory I was working on two weeks ago, and I cannot double click any part of it to go back and choose another folder.

I got FileZilla Pro a few weeks ago and I haven't made any changes to the preferences and it worked perfectly well the first time I used it, on the project now showing on the Local Site.

Any help is highly appreciated!

I tried to register at the Pro Forum but it tells me that the Order ID is unknown — I bought it on App Store.

As you bought it from the Mac Store, you are trapped inside Apple's sandbox.

Quoting @botg from this post:
botg wrote:If you are using FileZilla Pro from the Mac App Store you need to grant FileZilla permission through the directory access permissions dialog. After a system update it may be necessary to remove and re-add permissions.

Thank you for trying to help — I am not an advanced user — I tried to give read & write access to my work folder, restarted my Mac, but the "Local site" is still stuck on the same project.

Could you please advice where to change access permissions? What does it mean to be in the Apple Sandbox?

Just want to mention that I was able to access my files the first time I used FileZilla Pro (the files showing up on "Local site" now.

Thank you :)

Here's a link to the Pro forum:
https://customerforum.filezilla-project ... p=607#p607

According to the FileZilla dev, the Directory access permissions dialog window should be reachable through the Edit dialog.

Ahhh so simple — thank you. I've been Googling and searching, and I don't know why this limitation appeared there in the first place...

:D
