This may seem silly. I know the passworde but not the default user name.

If I installed XAMPP logged in as root do I need to be left logged in as root to access the ftp server?

Thanks in advace.

Ah yes, lol. I have experienced some of the high security features of proftpd by putting in the wrong details a few times, lol.

Many thanx.

Hi, if you search through the site on the main pages there's a security script you can run which takes care of all the security concerns, including changing the password for proftpd.
