I successfully installed XAMPP on Mac OS X EL Capitan Version 10.11.1. Apache Server, ProFTPD and MySQL Database are running.
I followed XAMPP's How-to-guide to transfer files via the proFTPD server / configure FTP access, so I can also use a FTP client like Filezilla to access the htdocs/ subdirectory of the XAMPP installation directory.
As I'm the only user, I didn't create a group. I did however chown and chmod the directory so it is writeable and I'm the owner.
Host address: 127.0.0.1
username = My Macbook account username (= the one shown to me when I use whoami using Terminal)
password = My Macbook account password
No typo. Everything appears to be correct. But I'm not able to connect.
Status: Connecting to 127.0.0.1:21... Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message... Response: 220 ProFTPD 1.3.4c Server (ProFTPD) [::ffff:127.0.0.1] Command: USER ****** Response: 331 Password required for ****** Command: PASS ********** Response: 530 Login incorrect. Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server
When I enable remote access and then use FileZilla and SFTP, hostname also localhost, my username and password are accepted just fine. But in this case I can't see the htdocs folder at all. There's no /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/ directory to be found.
Is there something on Mac OS X EL Capitan that prevents access?
