I've searched the XAMPP and Apache sites and can't seem to find anyway with the same problem that I'm having which includes an answer that'll work for my system.
I'm using a Macbook and have installed XAMPP so I can have a local environment for WordPress development. Problem is, is that when I try to do anything like updates, WordPress is asking for FTP details. Something I've never even seen before until now.
So I enter the host, username and password. It seems to be correct but says the following "
Failed to connect to FTP Server My Mac:21".
Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm assuming port 21 is blocked or something? But I have no idea how to go about fixing it. Thanks.
