How To : Use the FileZilla XML Import File

On the FTP Server Login page there is a button to download a FileZilla XML Import file.
This file can be used to import all the FTP settings directly into FileZilla, except for your password. For security reasons we cannot automatically put your password into this file. You will have to enter the password into FileZilla manually after you have run the import.

Downloading the FileZilla XML Import File

On the Server page in the Multicraft Control Panel:
  • Click 'Files' and then 'FTP File Access' on the left hand menu
  • This will take you to the FTP Server Login page, the FTP details for your server should also be displayed
  • If you have access to multiple servers then you can select another server from the 'Server to connect to' drop-down
  • Click the 'Click here to download as FileZilla XML Import (Password not included)' button at the bottom
  • The browser should now download the import file

Importing the FileZilla XML Import File
