Automatic rename option for FTP Voyager

Updated March 12, 2019


FTP Voyager can automatically rename files after they have been uploaded or downloaded. This feature is used if the files on the server are required to have a specific extension, yet you require a different extension to work with them locally (such as .html vs. .htm).


In order for your Auto-Rename rules to be applied to the uploaded or downloaded files, you must enable it on the File Handling page of a site profile that is located within the Site Profile Manager. For example, enable "Automatic Rename on Upload" to enforce Auto-Rename rules for file uploads.


The extensions of the files to be renamed should be configured first after they have been transferred using FTP Voyager. The configuration is done from View > Options > Auto Rename. A different set of rules can also be configured for uploading and downloading.


The Auto Rename function is available on a per-site profile basis. This means that in order for the Auto Rename rules to be used, it must be enabled for specific profiles in your Site Profile Manager. To enable this option, check the 


FTP Voyager version 16.2.0
