Everyone knows FileZilla FTP-client programm. It is fast, easy to use and offers most used functions for a good ftp-client. And it is open source & free. But there is a big problem: Filezilla stores passwords in a very unsecure way. Filezilla stores passwords of recent servers, passwords of sites in site-manager in plain text.
Files (and path) storing passwords:
Path for Windows XP/2K: “C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\FileZilla”
Path for Windows 7/Vista: “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\”
Path for Linux: “/home/USERNAME/.filezilla/”
If your ftp-software does not display more than 1998 file names (2000 with symbolic links), you must change config file of Pure-FTP and restart ftpd. Use a ssh-client , recommend Putty.
[ssh] pico -w /etc/pure-ftpd.conf
# 'ls' recursion limits. The first argument is the maximum number of
# files to be displayed. The second one is the max subdirectories depth
LimitRecursion 2000 8
# Are anonymous users allowed to create new directories ?
Change this to something like LimitRecursion 20000 20 etc.
Hello, I am a beginner and looking for a free webhosting. It should have PHP5 and MYSQL and Phpmyadmin. I need FTP access for uploading files. I cannot use web-panel to upload a CMS with 1000 files. It would be nice to have shell access and no ad-banners displayed on/under pages. I need it for Wordpress.
