    Hi, I have a similar problem, listings of all folders is good, but when it comes to php or html files they just dont show up, why ?

    is there something i have to change in the settings for Filezilla…

  7. Vivek says:

    Hi Jeff, I have been using Filezilla for several years and I’m 100% sure that the default FileZilla configuration ( When you install it fresh ) and unless you have done some really Techie changes ( Which I think you have’nt ) then the Only reason could be you dont actually have any files on the Server, try uploading some files to your server and also see that you have file upload permissions on your server .

    Thanks Buddy, saved me pulling my hair out!

  9. Hi, yes great tip and you’d think that they would default that option from install wouldn’t you? Also make sure that if any of you are using any Adobe software such as Dreamweaver CS4, check your file and folder settings there as well.
