XAMPP comes preloaded with the FileZilla FTP server. Here is how to setup the service, and create an account.

  1. Enable the FileZilla FTP Service through the XAMPP Control Panel to make it startup automatically (check the checkbox next to filezilla to install the service). Then manually start the service.

  2. Create an ftp account through the FileZilla Server Interface (its the essentially the filezilla control panel). There is a link to it Start Menu in XAMPP folder. Then go to Users->Add User->Stuff->Done.

  3. Try connecting to the server (localhost, port 21).

It should have a default user, "newuser" with a password, "wampp" – Keyslinger May 24 '12 at 20:12
@Keyslinger in windows, I think there is not. we must create new user first. – Gunslinger_ Apr 24 '14 at 4:57

You would have to enable or start up an FTP server on the machine XAMPP is running on.

How can I do this? – Doug Apr 2 '10 at 19:36
Considering you didn't list an operating system I can't really help you with that. – Josh K Apr 2 '10 at 20:05
