Obtaining FileZilla User Account Passwords
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||Server 2003 R2|
I am an IT Administrator for my company and we use FileZilla for our FTP transfers, when creating an FTP account we keep the password in a user sheet created by us but due to a server issue we have lost all of the passwords and have customers calling us asking for the password and we cannot find out.
I did some research on the net and apparently the passwords appear in plain text in an .xml file which I have found but they are not in plain text.
How can I obtain these passwords please?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we have over 200 user accounts.

A quick search suggests that it is impossible to recover the passwords from the XML file because they are run through a one-way hash function.
I suggest closing this support request because it is impossible to fulfill.
