I am trying to run wordpress locally on my computer before uploading it but I have a problem. Everytime I want to upload a new theme, I run into this problem:
To perform the requested action, connection information is required.
Connection Type Connection Type FTP FTPS (SSL)
Now, I know that there is about a million topics related to this problem, but I can't solve mine. I am using the latest versions of both XAMPP and WordPress. Does anyone have any clue what the ftp hostname, username and password are with xampp? How can I make sure that the port 21 is open?
If you can't answer my question, do you know an alternative to XAMPP that I could use on my MAC? The only thing I want is to be able to run it locally.
Thanks for you help!
