I recently set up a Xampp server so that I could practice PHP+MySQL more efficiently (as opposed to uploading to an external server everytime I make a change).
The problem that I'm having with FTP access is that:
If I type in localhost on the server, it directs me straight to the 'Xampp' folder in the htdocs directory...
...this is password protected using .htaccess and .htpasswd...
... the FTP server is therefore trying to connect to the htdocs directory but is being redirected to the Xampp directory (which, of course, will not accept the FTP password)...
Therefore, I get a 'connection failed' message.
Does anyone know how to stop this redirection? I might be able to cheat my way around it by setting up a directory path, but I'd rather just get it sorted out properly
Any help is much appreciated!
PS: Xampp comes with the FileZilla FTP server, incase anyone was interested =P.
