Virtual Directory Ability

My server has multiple hard drives and shared folders
on each hard drive because any single HDD cannot hold
all the info I wish to share. If I list all the shared
folders separately I can only name one to be home, when
that is done, I can't navigate to another shared folder
on the server. Is there a way to make virtual
directories where proxy folders for all the shared
folders can be stored so that the FileZilla Server
settings holding the virtual directory path information
will automatically redirect the FTP browser/client to
the correct directory (basically like Windows IIS)?
I use FTP Surfer as my FTP browser.

Steps for Creating a Virtual Directory:

  1. Click "Add" and navigate to the directory you want to use

with FileZilla Server.

  1. Click "OK" to add the directory.
  2. Right-click the directory entry (in the FileZilla dialog)

you made and select "Edit aliases"

  1. Enter an alias, including the full path to your

designated FTP root directory.

For example, if my FTP root is "C:\applications", and I want
to add a virtual directory for "S:\myfiles\servicepacks"
with the name "patches", the directory entry will look like

Directories Aliases


Hope that helps

Triage suggestion

FileZilla Server 0.9.60 supports aliases. In addition, @prezla answered @maqleod's question 12 years ago.

I suggest closing this ticket.
