The FileZilla Server is a flexible and mature product allowing you to run an FTP server as a standard program or as a service. It is highly configurable which makes it suitable for both fixed and portable installations. Uniform Server uses this flexibility to provide a dynamic server that integrates into the Uniform Server architecture, providing a pre-configured portable ftp server with minimal configuration. In addition the server can be used on another machine as a stand-alone server. No restrictions are imposed by Uniform Server allowing for a standard implementation and configuration of The FileZilla Server.

Background

For convenience one user us_user has been pre-configured with password us_user123. It is important you change this password at the first opportunity. Every time you start the Uniform Server FileZilla Controller you are prompted to change the password. Changing the password will stop this annoying prompt. If you wish, at the same time, you can change the us_user name and optionally change the ftp server port.

After installing ZeroXI_filezilla_server module it is assumed you will be transferring files to the Apache root folder www and its subfolders. The us_user has been pre-configured with the path to this folder (for example C:UniServerZwww). Moving Uniform Server (folder UniServerZ and all its content) to a different location the ftp root path is updated to match the new location.

You can create Vhosts using UniController and manually assign ftp users and paths to the Vhost root folders. So long as the ftp root paths are within folder UniServerZ paths will automatically update when moving the servers. Note: Paths outside of UniServerZ are not portable and require manually updating.

You can run the FileZilla server as a stand-alone server on another machine by moving or copying folder fz_server. In this scenario the us_user will have its root folder automatically changed to the sub-folder fz_root. This is primarily for use when backing up data to an external machine within the same network forexample when using MySQL Auto DB Backup.

Manually deleting the us_user using FileZilla Server Interface, will not change automatic path tracking. Root paths configured in the FileZilla configuration file are automatically updated. This only applies to files paths contained within folder UniServerZ likewise for a stand-alone server paths in folder fz_serverfz_root are automatically updated.

Install module (plugin)

Note: There are two modules to choose from, ZeroXI_filezilla_server_xp is specifically for running on Windows XP and ZeroXI_filezilla_server for running on all Windows above XP.Although ZeroXI_filezilla_server_xp will run on all Window versions it contains the last version of FileZilla to run on XP hence for newer Window versions it is recommended to use ZeroXI_filezilla_server.

Install The Uniform Server Portable FileZilla Server plugin as follows:

  1. Download ZeroXI_filezilla_server_1_0_0.exe module (plugin)
  2. Copy ZeroXI_filezilla_server_1_0_0.exe module (plugin) to folder UniServerZ
  3. Double click on the downloaded module
  4. This starts the extraction process
  5. If requested allow overwriting of existing files.
  6. If you wish to save space delete file ZeroXI_filezilla_server_1_0_0.exe

UniServer FileZilla Controller - Integrated into UniServer

The UniServerZfz_server folder contains file UniFzController.exe which opens The Uniform Server's Portable FileZilla control application for running the server as a standard program.

Run FileZilla server as a Program

Uniform Server FileZilla Controller runs the server as a standard program. When using FZ Controller nothing is installed to your operating system's registry. This is ideal for development, especially when running from a USB memory stick, since you do not have to perform anything special to stop or remove the server.

Run FZ Controller:
Use one of the following methods to run FZ Controller:
  • Navigate to the folder UniServerZ and double click on file UniFzController.bat
  • Or navigate to the folder UniServerZfz_server.
    • Locate the file UniFzController.exe and double click
Before UniServer FileZilla Controller is displayed the change user password warning pop-up is displayed. Click 'Ok' to continue.

Run FZ Server:
  • UniServer FileZilla Controller is shown on the right.
  • Change the user password and click 'Save changes' button.
  • Click Start FZ Server button. Starts the FileZilla server
    • If challenged by your firewall, allow access.
    • Button toggles state displaying Stop FTP server.
    • Indicator changes from red to green indicating server is running.

Quick Test:
  • Start your browser.
  • Enter the following: ftp://[email protected] into navigation bar.
    • An Authentication pop-up window is display, enter your password (us_user123).

Expected Result:
  • Index of ftp://[email protected]/ displayed
  • All folders and files in root folder
    UniServerZwww are listed

Run FileZilla server as a Service

Before installing and running FileZilla as a service ensure it is properly configured by running it as a standard program explained above.
Note running as a service adds data to the Windows registry, the server is no-longer portable.
Benefit of running as a service, server automatically starts when the host PC re-starts.

Running as a service does not require the UniServer FileZilla Controller, if running ensure FileZilla server is stopped and close UniServer FileZilla Controller.
Service control is provided by two batch files zilla_service_start.bat and zilla_service_stop.bat
these are located in folder *UniServerZfz_serverfz_portable run them as follows:

Install and run service:
  • Navigate to the folder fz_serverfz_portable
  • Locate file zilla_service_start.bat
  • Windows XP: Double click on file zilla_service_start.bat
  • Or Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

UniServer FileZilla Controller - Stand-alone FileZilla server

The following is a step-by-step guide for configuring and running a stand-alone FTP server. The primary use for such a server is to transfer database backup archives to another PC connected to the same network. For this example it is assumed you have copied folder fz_server and all its content to drive C: on another PC. Note you can test on your current PC however if you followed the examples above ensure the FileZilla server is not running or installed as a service. Before continuing create two test files (test1.txt and test2.txt) in folder C:fz_serverfz_root
