That said - XAMPP for linux comes with ProFTPd pre-configured for user 'nobody' (which is the default/owner user for LAMPP).
The configuration file is /opt/lampp/etc/proftpd.conf.
If you don't run the LAMPP security fix, you will need to fix the password. If you do run the security fix, the FTP password should be updated as well.

Good luck with LAMPP
Will it work if I were to run gadmin-proftpd for a GUI? or will this mess up lampp?
startftp Starts the ProFTPD server. Via FTP you can upload files for your web server (user "nobody", password "lampp"). This command activates the ProFTPD permanently, e.g. if you restarts XAMPP in the future FTP will stay activated.
stopftp Stops the ProFTPD server. This command deactivates the ProFTPD permanently, e.g. if you restarts XAMPP in the future FTP will stay deactivated.
