Filezilla - Lost password

October 2017


I used Filezilla in quick connection mode, so without actually using the FTP Manager ... but I've lost the password to my site. Is there any solution to get it back.


Once Filezilla launched, click on "Edit" then "Export".
  • Then check all the boxes (normally three) and confirm.
  • You end up with an XML file.
  • By opening it with a simple text editor, you should see the password in clear text in a tag <pass> password </pass>
