Any way programatically to export all users and groups

#1 Post by mrmurdock » 2010-08-06 00:21

My boss is beating me up in regards to FTP Statistics. I would rather not get rid of filezilla, but I am up the wall.
Is there a way to export the users/passwords, and groups from Filezilla?

The XML file from FileZilla Server is humanly readable. You can get all information (except passwords) directly from there. A dedicated Export feature like in FileZilla Client does not exist in the server. You'll get the XML either from its Program Files directory, or, in case of modern OS with UAC on, from the VirtualStore (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore)

Exporting passwords from the server is impossible because it never stored them, only the MD5 hashes.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
