Read the FAQ

We've already answered a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). There is a General FAQ, FileZilla Client FAQ and FileZilla Server FAQ, read them first.

Read the documentation

Some documentation is available on this wiki.

Search Before Posting

There is a good chance you're not the first person to experience the issue you are having. By searching the forums, you may be able to find posts about the problem you are experiencing. Also try searching the forums and the support, patches, bugs and feature request trackers on the project page, and make sure you're not creating a new topic on someting that has already been discussed before (known as posting a duplicate or 'dupe').

Post in the Approriate Place

There are different places to post different things, and we ask you to only post your issue in one place.

First of all, feature requests should go in the Feature Request Tracker on Similarly bug reports should go to the Bugs Tracker and patches to the Patches Tracker. Are you looking for support, you can either post in the Client Support Forum for FileZilla client specific questions, the Support Forum for issues with FileZilla Server or in the Support Request Tracker on the project page.

Be Patient and Have Good Manners

Remember that support provided for the FileZilla project is made by volunteers; no one is paid to answer you. So, please, do not demand an answer, ask for one. Using good manners and words like "please" and "thank you" go further than you might think.
