Dropbox and Filezilla Pro

#1 Post by Zikye » 2019-12-21 03:28

Hi, I write because I need to know if it is possible to transfer files from a Filezilla server to DropBox, and if it is possible to transfer from DropBox to a Filezilla server.

Cheers!

I mean I have a host and there I have everything I need, and I want to transfer all those files to DropBrox so I can move them to a new host. That's possible?

Direct server-to-server transfers are not supported. You can download from the old host to local, then upload from local to the new one. However, if you can show a Dropbox location as a local directory, you might be able to just transfer to it.

Direct connections to Dropbox are only supported by Pro.

As we said: not directly. You cannot connect to the FTP server at one side and to Dropbox at the other, that's not supported.

You need to set up Dropbox so that it appears as a local directory in your OS. If you then download into that "local" directory, the files will go to that cloud provider.
