FileZilla start up error

#1 Post by kelseylaugen » 2019-05-21 19:31

I try to open FileZilla and this is the error code that pops up. "Could not find the resource files for FileZilla, closing FileZilla. You can specify the data directory of FileZilla by setting the FZ_DATADIR environement variable." I am unsure on how to do that as it will not allow me to open the application

You are using FileZilla Client, not Server. Moving.

The simplest solution to this error message is to download the installer and reinstall FileZilla. This will put the missing resources into place, again.

Have a word with your Antivirus, it probably keeps deleting important files.

I've been using both FileZilla and MacAfee for a long time. Today is the first time I've had this problem.

I'm really not sure what to ask MacAfee.

When he says 'have word with' he's being metaphorical.

He means learn how to configure it.

I would suggest you temporarily disable your antivirus to work out of that is causing your problem
