  • Anyone have the correct answer to this? Changes to the FileZilla Server.xml file are not read in, even after restarting the service.

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. May 11, 2015 at 14:04
  • @ColinO'Dell You're right, of course. Should I delete this answer?

  • 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 :) May 11, 2015 at 21:20

For the serveur version it is in AppData\Local\filezilla-server-gui\settings.xml in current version of filezilla server.
