Editing files within FileZilla

Updated Oct 31st, 2017 at 12:01 GMT

In this tutorial we will show you how to edit text files from within FileZilla. My preferred text editor of choice for Windows is Notepad++ downloadable from here. If you use OSX/Linux I would recommend gedit.

Download and install Notepad++, then open up FileZilla and connect to your site.

Go to Edit -> Settings -> File Editing

Click "custom editer" and browse to the path of Notepad++

[IMG]

Under File type associations uncheck "Inherit system's filetype associations"

[IMG]

This will stop Filezilla trying to open regular notepad or your browser to view/edit files. Then click ok to save/exit the settings menu.

Navigate to the file you want to edit and then right click it and select view/edit.

Edit your file with Notepad++

[IMG]

Save the file and close the editor, you will be prompted by FileZilla that the file has changed.

[IMG]

Check "Finish editing and delete local file" and then click yes.

FileZilla will then upload the changed file to the server.
