I can access my ftp by ftp://localhost but thats it I get a "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/ on line 70" omsartsup.php is the file that process the content in the form.....any help will be appreciated!!! Im going crazy here thanks in advance! And by the way Im still new to php just to let you guys know...

>Im going crazy here

You will keep on going crazy if you dont learn to give a proper description of what you are doing there. Obviously you are trying to install a certain software on your webserver (why dont you ask the programmers of that software?) and give us a short and completely insufficient description of what is going wrong.

The FTP user is 'nobody' and his password is 'xampp'

By using the default password for the FTP user nobody everyone can upload and change files for your XAMPP webserver. So if you enabled ProFTPD you should set a new password for user nobody. Use a FTP application like Cyberduck and you can connect to your XAMPP via FTP. You will get Cyberduck from

I hope this helps ...
