Try looking at FileZilla Server.xml in your install directory.

thanks, that's correct. another question, my filezilla server somehow doesn't read this file, how to apply this settings to current filezilla server? – Arief Dec 6 '10 at 20:10

In current FileZilla-Versions look into %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla. The sitemanager.xml inside this folder contains the wanted information. For migration, it is possbible to copy the whole FileZilla-Folder from one Windows installation to another (or one Windows user to another).

I believe that's where the client stores its data, not the server. – Colin O'Dell May 11 '15 at 14:04
@ColinO'Dell You're right, of course. Should I delete this answer? – Mitja May 11 '15 at 16:59
I'm not sure, because it might be helpful to list both the server and client password locations on the same page like this, just in case somebody stumbles across here looking for your answer. Whatever you think is best :) – Colin O'Dell May 11 '15 at 21:20
