Some CPanels do not provide Filezilla Configuration Files

When I go to FTP Accounts->Special FTP Accounts-> Configure FTP Client, I'm used to seeing Filezilla on the far left.

Lately, it seems Filezilla is missing a lot.

Is there a reason for this or a flag I need to set to get it back?

Hello,


There is not a flag to bring this back on newer versions of cPanel & WHM you should not be seeing the FileZilla configuration any longer as we stopped promoting configurations with FileZilla in favor of CoreFTP for windows and Cyberduck for Mac. In v84 we removed any references to FileZilla remaining in the product.

You can still use FileZilla should you chose to, there is nothing preventing it from working.

Thanks for answering my question, Lauren - I'm just curious about why this was done? Are these paid placements that Filezilla stopped paying for, or do you think Filezilla is a bad choice? If the latter, I'd like to know why.

Hello,


They're not paid placements. From my understanding decision was based on concerns in regard to business practices on FileZilla's part, in fact, we don't use them in house to test FTP at all either.
