#1850 closed Feature request

Configurable location of FileZilla.xml

If you use FileZilla.xml instead of the registry to store
site information the location of the file FileZilla.xml is
fixed in the install dir of FileZilla.

It would be nice to be able to specify a location yourself.

In that way we could use a central FileZilla.xml file for
all FileZilla users. So we can all use the same settings...

YES YES YES...good good good...keep the xml file in a SAFE
place, some thing where we can put a path to a folder where
there are the XML files...

A single file with the same settings would force everyones
layout to be the same. I think it would be nice if the
FileZilla.xml file was broken into two files. One would be
for settings and the other for sites.

I have logged feature request 781382 (Split FileZilla.xml in
FTP Sites.xml&FileZilla settings.xml) for this.

You could even have a "private / local site info" file and
a "public / central site info" file...

I also would like to have the XML file in a configurable
place. I personally don't see the need of splitting the file.
However, it should be possible to provide a location for
both the settings and sites. This makes it possible to store
the configuration file on a central place for users with a
home or office network.

A simple solution could be to add a commandline option that
points to the configuration.

FileZilla 3 beta11 has the ability to use a file called fzdefaults.xml, which itself contains "global" Site Manager items as well as the location to the ordinary FileZilla configuration directory. Read the file docs/fzdefaults.xml.example yourself for how to use it.

Is there anything more than cannot be done with this approach but fits this topic?
