Errors As Soon As I Open Program

#1 Post by kkelseym » 2020-02-28 22:51

I've never been able to use FileZilla because every time I open it or close it I immediately get multiple popup errors. I've tried downloading it multiple times over the course of months because I keep trying again and again. I've put the errors below. How do I fix or stop them and get this thing working?

Error writing xml file (APPEARS FOUR TIMES)
Could not write "/.config/filezilla/filezilla.xml": Failed to write xml file

Error saving queue
An error occured saving the transfer queue to "/.config/filezilla/queue.sqlite3":. Some queue items might not have been saved.

Error loading queue (APPEARS TWICE)
An error occured loading the transfer queue from "/.config/filezilla/queue.sqlite3". Some queue items might not have been restored.

Filezilla Error
Directory '/.config/filezilla' couldn't be created (error 13: Permission denied)

If it helps I'm using a Mac.

Did you at any point decline a prompt by macOS to grant FileZilla permission to access its own configuration files?

Nope. I just checked to make sure to and it has access to files & folders.

Check the permissions of the directory ~/.config/filezilla as well as the files it contains, and also its parent directory ~/.config

I'm not sure how to do that. Is it one of the hidden folders in my harddrive? I'm not sure how to unhide them using Terminal.

ls -l to list files and permissions, and chmod to change permissions if needed.

UPDATE: I never got FileZilla to work, it just kept erroring, so I switched to a different program which works no problem whatsoever. If you use Mac and have this issue try Transmit 5.
