FTP Server Importing Users

#1 Post by roggy » 2010-07-30 07:39

Good Morning,

I need to install an FTP server and be able to import user accounts from my previous solution, the accounts are in a text file and the passwords are stored as an MD5 within this file is this something Filezilla can do?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Michael

FileZilla Server stores its users in an XML document in its program directory.

Create a user or two and look at the created file to see its structure, it's pretty much self-explanatory.

You can then write yourself a simple script that converts between your old format and the new.

Yes. Simple edit FileZilla Server.xml and afterwards call "FileZilla Server.exe" /reload-config to reload the file. This does not disrupt active connections and ongoing transfers.
