Well, if i understand you wanna access the xampp folder via ftp with a non root access?
if that's the case, create an user with limited access and create a password , then go to /opt/lampp/etc/proftpd.conf and edit the configuration,
open it with any text editor you like and then enter info like this:

Code: Select all
RequireValidShell off
AllowOverwrite on
AllowRetrieveRestart on
AllowStoreRestart on
Umask            022
DefaultTransferMode ascii
AllowOverwrite on
MaxClients 3
DeleteAbortedStores on
DefaultRoot /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp  user-created

where the user-created is the name in this example of the ftp user created...
then final step is restarting the proftp daemon like this /opt/lampp/lampp stopftp
hope this helps.. regards :D
