FileZilla v0.9 Install Guide
Learn how to install FileZilla's FTP server on your VPS or dedicated server!
FileZilla is a free and open-source FTP Manager Server/Client application. With this program, you can transfer the files you need from your computer to your host or server. And you can easily modify the access to your files.
FileZilla supports simultaneous sending of multiple files in parallel, support for dragging and dropping, and matching files are the features of this program.
In the first step, agree to the terms and choose I Agree if you agree!
Check the components that you wish to be installed and choose Next.
Now, in this section, it asks for 3 questions.
- 1.The first one is how the FileZilla server should be started that we recommend putting it on the default option.
- 2.The second question is to choose a port number for the FileZilla by which it will be used to administrate the server with the FileZilla server interface.
You can choose an amount between 1 to 65535. You can choose any free port number on your server.
This is not the FTP port used by FTP clients. Do NOT set this port as 21 as that will be in use for FTP clients.
3. The third one is to check or uncheck the option “Start server after setup completes”.
On the next step, choose how the interface of the server should be started and click Install.
Once it was opened, a pop screen will be shown. Click Connect to administrate.
Now you need to create at least one username and define a folder. To do this, click on the
Usersoption > Choose
addto add a new user > Check the
Passwordbox and choose a secure password with at least 8 characters.
To assign one or more folders to this user, choose
Shared folders, and click
Add. Next to the shared folders that you chose, also set the accesses that you wish to assign for this new user and click ok.
Additionally, you will need to add a second firewall rule for the FileZilla Server EXE file. This will allow FileZilla to listen on additional ports for transfers once users are connected. Our firewall guide goes over both inbound port rules and EXE rules.
