I want a FTP server for Windows which lets me add new username and password in C# without restarting it. In IIS, I could not find a way to add new username and password using C#, looks like no APIs are available to do this. I have also tried FileZilla, it lets me add new username and passwords to its config file but I should restart the service for the changes to take effect which may break current sessions. Any suggestions for suitable FTP server? A .NET API to add username and password is appreciated.

  • According to the documentation Filezilla Server has the /reload-config commandline parameter, which should reread a modified configuration file, making changes effective. The GUI also applies changes immediately without a reboot, so hot-reloading config is certainly possible. – Alejandro Jan 28 '19 at 17:10
