You are here: Globodox DB > File Stores >Convert an Existing Folder-based File Store to FTP

You can configure Globodox so that any files you add are stored on a pre-designated FTP server (for e.g. a IIS FTP server). In a multi-user setup a FTP based file store would be more secure than a network share based File Store. By creating FTP based File stores you eliminate the possibility of users directly going to a File Store and modifying documents.

1.Before converting please make sure you configure the existing File Store folder for FTP access.
2.Open the DB whose file store you want to convert FTP based File Store.
3.Click Settings > DB Settings in the Navigation Pane.
4.Select the File Store node and double click the existing File Store in the List View pane. The File Store window will now be launched.
5.Check the Use FTP location option to make it a FTP based file store. The FTP Settings dialog will now be launched.
6.In the Host name or IP address box enter the name or the IP address of the machine on which the FTP folder resides.
7.In the Port box enter the port number to connect to the FTP. By default the FTP uses port 21.
8.In the Folder Path enter path of the FTP folder. for e.g. /documentmanagement.
9.In the Example box the location of your FTP folder will be displayed.
10.In the User Name and Password box, enter the user name and password, that Globodox should use to connect to the FTP.
11.Select the transfer mode from the Transfer Mode box.
12.Click the Test button to test FTP the connection. If the connection is fine, then click the OK button to save the settings.
13.Click the Save and close button to convert the file store to FTP based File Store.



Every Globodox DB has at least one File Store but a single DB can have multiple File Stores as well.
Each Globodox DB must always have one File Store designated as the Default File Store
The Default File Store is the same as other File Store except for the fact that all newly added documents (including scanned documents) are saved in this folder.
