Hey guys!

It’s been well over a year since I post­ed any­thing on this site. Any­way, recent­ly I need­ed to find a way to trans­fer a long list of site con­fig­u­ra­tion data from a Win­dows instal­la­tion of FileZil­la, the FTP client, to an Ubun­tu 12.04 instal­la­tion of the same FTP client.

In case you ever find your­self in a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion, here is how to do it:-

In my case, both Win­dows and Ubun­tu had ver­sion 3.x of FileZil­la installed. In ver­sion 2.x, you need­ed to copy the %APPDATA%FileZilla con­tents found in your Win­dows instal­la­tion to the .filezil­la fold­er found in your Ubun­tu home direc­to­ry. That’s not the case with ver­sion 3.x. In ver­sion 3.x, there is a pret­ty easy way to import your Win­dows instal­la­tion set­tings to Ubun­tu. 

Make sure to mount the Win­dows instal­la­tion direc­to­ry under Ubun­tu, run FileZil­la 3.x, go to File > Import and browse to the %APPDATA%FileZilla direc­to­ry (in Win­dows XP, if your Win­dows instal­la­tion direc­to­ry is C: , then you should go to C:Documents and Set­ting­sUser­nameAp­pli­ca­tion DataFileZil­la) and select sitemanager.xml.

That’s it. It’ll suc­cess­ful­ly import all your site con­fig­u­ra­tion data to your Ubun­tu instal­la­tion of the FileZil­la FTP client.
