I am trying to find a way to move a file in XAMPP. There is a plug-in I have activated which wants me to change where my.htaccess file is located

Hello Nar321,

Thanks for the question. FTP is used to move files on a network - typically through the internet. If your server is on a network (I'm not sure how you have XAMPP loaded - is it on a server? on a single desktop computer?), then you can configure FTP to move the files around - you just have to identify the source and the destination. However, if you're on a single computer and you have XAMPP loaded locally, then you could simply use the file manager of the OS that you're using. Whatever makes it easier for you is usually the best way to handle it. If you provide some details on how you have it set up then we can try to give you some advice on how best to approach it. And if you can give us an idea of exactly where you're trying to move the file - that information would also be valuable if you wish for us to advise to use FTP or another means of moving the file.

Apologies that we can't give you an exact answer. Please provide us a little information and we'd be happy to help.

It is a local install which has been changed to AMPPS. I am using Win 7 which by default makes it difficult to move files (no right click possibilty and a tutorial I attempted to follow to enable same lost me completely) So when I saw that Notepad++ has FTP possibility attempted to find a way to enable it and it is unclear as being able to use it to move files if the site is a local install.

Hello nar321,

Thank you for providing more information. You should definitely be able to right-click on any windows 7 computer, by default.

Since it seems you want to edit a file on your local computer, you should be able to open the file directly, by double-clicking with the left button; or right-clicking, and choosing Open With, and choosing Notepad (or notepad++).

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
