All settings are saved in FileZilla Server.xml
Good luck!

Hi,

this doesnt work...

...i backup the FileZilla Server.xml and restore it after a new installation of windows and Filezille Server in the Filezilla Programm directory.

But it will not work. (Sorry for my bad english).

What i did wrong or what i can do? I will not configure all from the beginning...

Did you restart the Sever service?

Yes. Two possibilities:

1. Restart the service. This will force FZ Server to re-read its configuration file.

2. Open an Admin shell (cmd or Powershell), navigate to the FZ Server directory and issue the following command:

Code: Select all

"FileZilla Server.exe" /reload-config

I have the same problem, I have run the command above and it's still the same.

This is what I've done:
Stop/start the service
run the command from inside the filezilla server folder
I've stopped Filezilla then restarted it by right clicking the config file and selected 'open with' and chosen 'Filezilla server.

Any suggestions would be welcome please..

Which version of FileZilla Server are you using?

It's really old I'm afraid; 0.9.43 beta but it's currently on Windows Server 2003 but the new server is Windows Server 2019.

Thanks in advance..

You must update to the most recent version, old versions are not supported.

@botg: I guess the issue is that the format of the old XML file from 0.9.43 is somehow not recognized (or not recognized correctly) by the new 0.9.60 version he's trying to migrate to. Usually, just copying it in and restarting the service (or issuing the command from an admin shell) should work. "Open with" the XML does not work, stop trying that, y'all.

Hopefully, the new server will eventually be ready.
