What are you trying to do that requires you to do a binary upload to localhost?

I am trying to test a subscription software and it requires me to transfer in binary mode. It is giving me errors because I didn't.

Do you know how to do this?

If your trying to upload to localhost using FTP then you may well have errors.

Extract the files from the script's archive (zip file etc) to a directory on your desktop then just copy or move the files to the directory in your localhost web site using Windows Explorer in the normal way or simply extract the files to the directory location in your localhost web site - don't use FTP for localhost file transfers.

Thats all you need to do.

Unfortunately that's exactly what I did, I moved the folder to the Xampp/htdocs folder with explorer. I did not use an FTP program.

I am actually trying to find out how to use Filezilla to transfer the folder in binary mode.

[Filezilla 2.2.32]

In Filezilla (client):

Default transfer type:
Edit >> Settings... >> File transfer settings >> ASCII/Binary >> Binary

Current transfer type:
Transfer >> Transfer Type >> Binary

But how do log into my localhost and able to see the right folder on localhost in Filezilla?

When I enter the default port and address, FileZila gets stuck/just haults like it's waiting.

Can you even log into localhost with the filezilla client? What is the Filezilla Server with Xampp for?

It's simply a FTP Server program. It's on you to configure users and groups and default folders for the users. There is NO default configuration.
