FileZilla

Open FileZilla click on edit then click users, click on the add button add a Name. Then check password and type in a password. Then Click on Shared Folders add the share folder for that account and place check marks if you want that user to be able to have write access append access etc. Then you the continue to speed limits if you want to setup a speed limit for each of the accounts.

Sorry but i didn't understand this part:

Do i need to add my internet provider username and password ? And on the top my SMTP right ?

Then go to your website choose smtp as your mail sever, fill in your email addess yourname@yourdomain and for outgoing put in localhost and type in your password then you set in manange local users.


Where do i choose the smtp as your mail server to fill my email address ? Do you mean in the XAMPP main page or something else ?

You choose SMTP as you mail server in your website, but if your going to use Aardvark Topsites then you dont need to change it.

I have in my php.ini this:

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from = me@example.com


That means is like this right ?

without password.

Sorry have I missed a bit?

To map your (Internet) domain name (or sub domain) to your home PC running XAMPP, presumably you just point the domain name at the IP address of your machine?

If you're using sub folders (sub domains) presumably you just add the sub folder to the IP address?

Is that correct?
