Is there an easy way to share my settings with somebody?

#1 Post by douglerner » 2019-10-25 23:52

For the Mac, I think I set up things nicely now to work with my servers, see the files being transferred, get notifications, etc. Rather than explain all the settings one-by-one to other users who use our servers, is there a way of sending them a settings file (that doesn't include my own Site Manager sites, users and passwords of course) so they can just drop them in?

Otherwise I'll try to just make a log of setting suggestions.

Thanks,

doug

Site Manager entries are not in the settings file.

For creating a shareable settings file, first use the "Clear private data" item from the Edit menu. Check the first two options ("Quickconnect history" and "Reconnect information"). This will clear the QuickConnect history of servers and the Last server reconnect function.
Then, just copy the filezilla.xml file from the settings directory (~/.config/filezilla).
