249 bytes removed, 12:36, 10 July 2011
Punctuation and grammatical changes. Updated to vers. 1.2.
You can use either one or the other operation mode as described below.
== Static Operation ==
FileZilla FTPd is self-contained and totally independent of Uniform Server. Hence it It can be moved to a permanent location on your PC and run from there. If you are running The Uniform Server as a fixed installation, there is no need to move FileZilla FTPd.
FileZilla server can be run either as a standard program or as a service. Static operation allows file transfers from any folder on any drive.
'''''[[#top | Top]]'''''
=== Download and install ===
Depending on the version of Uniform Server, there are two download options as follows:
Uniform Server version 5.5-Nano
Download file [http://sourceforge.net/projects/miniserver/files/Plugins/UniServer%2055-Nano%20Plugins/FileZilla%20Server/V55_FileZillaFTPd_1.02.exe/download '''V55_FileZillaFTPd_1.02.exe'''] from SourceForge
UniTray’s configuration was changed and Russian language added.
'''''Note 1'':''' Installation procedure is identical.
Decide how you want to install FileZilla server, either independent of The Uniform Server (in a folder located outside of the UniServer folder), or within the UniServer folder.
'''''Note 2'':''' Whichever method you choose, the operation of FileZilla server is identical.
'''''[[#top | Top]]'''''
==== Independent of Uniform Server =====
# Create a new temp folder, for example “temp1”
# To save space, delete folder “temp1”
'''''[[#top | Top]]'''''
==== Or within UniServer folder ====
# Save USV5_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.exe to folder UniServer
# In folder UniServer, delete the following files: '''USV5_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.exe''', '''fz_start.bat''', '''fz_stop.bat''' and '''fz_admin.bat'''.
'''''Note'':''' Above The batch files are for portable use, and not required for a static installation of FileZilla.

=== Summary 1 ===
That completes server testing. You can now move onto on to [[FileZilla Server3: Basic Configuration 1 | configuration]].
'''''[[#top | Top]]'''''
== Portable Operation ==
The FileZilla FTPd plugin defaults to portable operation. This allows you to move both The Uniform Server and the FileZila servers server to any location, such as running from a USB memory stick.
File transfers are '''restricted''' to folders within the main UniServer folder, hence so this mode of operation is primarily intended only for test purposes. Locations outside this folder are not possible since portability requires all absolute paths to be rewritten.

== Summary ==
I split the above into two separate sections making to make it easier to understand.
Next The next page covers [[FileZilla Server3: Basic Configuration 1 | basic configuration]] which is common to whatever method you use to start FileZilla server.
If you want to tailor The Uniform Server and FileZilla to meet your own requirements, there are options to do this. These are covered later.
The [[FileZilla Server3: Install Options| Install Options page]] provides details for the various options and how to make modifications if you wish.
The core element portable FileZilla FTPd is covered on the next page. As explained above, to offer maximum flexibility the design allows it to be used independently of The Uniform Server. FileZilla is periodically updated hence the page includes an update guide.
