Thanks for the response. I think we are both confused.
I have taken your advic to use the File Zilla Client which I already use on other accounts. My point is the Images of the FileZilla interface in the Front page of Xampp do not match the actual interface of FileZilla. See here:http://www.jmwebsites.co.uk/FileZilla3.PNG
This is what I see and you will see it is not the same as in the front page of Xampp under Tools File Zilla. So the example entries shown do not make sense. The upshot is i can't connect via FTP.
Have just noticed that in that same front page under tools FileZilla it reads
Quote:Into the main directory of xampp, start "filezilla_setup.bat" for setup. But there is no filezilla_setup.bat file in the Directory. I have just done a full search and there is no such file in the Xampp directory anywhere! So prhaps this is the real problem. The system cannot work without the necessary files.
