Well, user 'nobody' with password 'xampp' is the default FTP setup for XAMPP. But in some XAMPP versions FTP was not properly working.
You can do two things:
- Try to change the password of xampp FTP user by running the xampp security program in the Terminal.
- Use the built-in FTP from Mac OS XChange FTP password in XAMPP
1. Startup Terminal.
2. Type 'sudo su' and press return.
3. Type in the password of the administrator account of your Mac. You don't see an indication that you are typing your password.
You are now logged in as superuser in the Terminal. Be careful now with typing commands, because you can totally mess up your system if you don't know what you are doing.
4. Type in this command:
- Code: Select all
With security program you can set some passwords for XAMPP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin and FTP. First you will be asked about settings passwords for XAMPP and MySQL, but finally you can set a password for the FTP-user.Make sure you make a backup of your XAMPP installation before starting the security program! In some XAMPP version I had noticed there were some bugs in this program which mess ups your XAMPP installation (it can happen you suddenly have no access to phpMyAdmin anymore, for example).Use built-in FTP from Mac OS X
1. Open System preferences.
2. Go to Share.
3. Turn on 'File sharing'.
4. With 'file sharing' selected in the list, click on 'options'.
5. An new window will appear above the System preferences window. You can turn on 'Share files and folders via FTP' here. If you have done that, your FTP login will be:
username: short name of the administrator account of your Mac.
password: the password that belongs to that account.
