filezilla connect to localhost

  • I use XAMPP, and setup a database: wordpress and made a new user (via Privileges) for this database with username: wordrpress and also made a password. I am using Filezilla client for FTPing, and I used:

    Host: 127.0.0.1
    Port: 21
    Protocol: SFTP (for security I was told)
    Logon Type: Normal
    User: wordrpess
    Password: the password I set up in phpmyadmin for database wordpress

    And do I have to use FTP, or can I just drap and drop files, why do I need to use FTP like Filezilla to transfer files.

    Any help appreciated!
