How To Install FileZilla On CentOS-6

UPDATED 1/14/13.  CENTOS VERSION 6.4 install by simply running, yum install filezilla.  VERSION 6.3 install by following steps below:

Step 1: Install EPEL repo by going to this site and click on, “epel-release-6-8.noarch” link to open and install package,

Step 2: Run following command to install Filezilla:

yum install filezilla

Filezilla should now be installed.  Go to CentOS menu bar and go to Applications > Internet, to run Filezilla.

Thanks again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~BELOW STEP IS THE OLD WAY~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1.  Go to:

and find the latest Filezilla client; at the time of my entry it was FileZilla_3.5.3.

2. Then run the rest of the steps in Linux Terminal:


(below) Will need to be run from the Terminal, Step 4 will uncompress the tar.bz2 file. Step 5 is to change to directory where uncompressed file is located. and finally, step 6 will compile the file into a workable program.

4.  tar -jxvf FileZilla_3.5.3_i586-linux-gnu.tar.bz2
5.  cd FileZilla3/bin
6.  ./filezilla

    yum install filezilla
    works for me on CentOS 6.3 maybe because I add EPEL Repository.

      From the GUI (Desktop environment), look in the decompressed output of FileZilla_3.5.3_i586-linux-gnu.tar.bz2, there should be a folder called “FileZilla3”. Within this folder (FileZilla3), click on “bin”. There should be an icon called “filezilla”. Left-click it and drag to location of your choice (Desktop or taskbar).

      FileZilla3 –> bin –> filezilla <–left-click and drag to location of choice.
