Filezilla 32bit not supported but need old site details!

#1 Post by stinkypete » 2019-07-09 10:34

I've recently upgraded my MacOS to Catalina which doesn't run the old Filezilla 32bit version. I've downloaded the 64bit version and am able to use.

My problem is that I need all the site info from my 32bit version. How can I import this to the 64bit?!

Please help!!

Where did you get FileZilla from?

In this case you don't have to do anything. The newer version will simply continue to use the old settings.

Should I see them automatically? I was expecting to see the all when I opened the new app but they have all disappeared! Is there something I should be doing to see them?

If you are still using the same user profile, there should be no problem (all settings are saved within the user profile). Check if the ~/.config/filezilla directory exists (you need to allow showing hidden items).

How old was your 32bit version?

Once I'd found the files in the right directory I was able to import them into my new version, thanks.

(the original FileZilla was years old but updated constantly)

It might have used the older ~/.filezilla location, then.
