Use the web client search field if you want to search files and directories. For example, *.jpg; *img_*, [abc].txt; ???.gif.


All Serv-U versions with supported OS:

  • Windows Vista/7/8, Server 2008/2012 
  • Windows 2000/XP, Server 2000/2003
  • Linux 


In the web client, you can search for files using the File Search button located under the file list pane. You can use the following wildcards:

  • Use the "*" parameter to search for files when the whole file name is unknown (for example, .*.txt, *SearchPhrase*, *FileName*).
  • Use the "?" parameter when a specific character is unknown in the file name (for example, .????Name.txt, FileName.???).
  • Use the "[]" parameter when a specific character is unknown but should contain one of the specified characters in the brackets (for example, .[fmn] ileName.txt, File[fmn]ame.txt).
