FileZilla FTP Server

Apache is not a FTP Server ... but FileZilla FTP is one. Please consider the following references.
Into the main directory of xampp, start "filezilla_setup.bat" for setup. Attention: For Windows NT, 2000 and XP Professional, FileZilla needs to install as service.
Configure "FileZilla FTP". For this, please use the FileZilla Interface with the "FileZilla Server Interface.exe". Two Users are in this example:

A: A default user "newuser", password "wampp". The home directory is xampp\htdocs.
B: An anonymous user "anonymous", no password. The home directory is xampp\anonymous.

The default interface is the loopback address
The FTP Server is shutdown with the "FileZillaFTP_stop.bat". For FileZilla FTP as service, please use the "FileZillaServer.exe" directly. Then, you can configure all start options.
