Installing xampp when I already use filezilla to upload my websites.

Hi quick background, I'm running windows 7 and I bought and installed the Super Suite (E-cart6, Datasist, etc), and used PHP myAdmin to download the sample e-commerce database that you guys so kindly provided.

I want to set up a testing server so that I can have shopping cart and database functionality on my site. So far I have static html sites built and have my sites sitting somewhere in documents and have FileZilla configured to transfer my files to my Godaddy server.

When I installed Xampp 3.2.1 I had the option to download Apache, MYSQL, FileZilla.... I Kind of need you guys to point me in the right direction as far as how to handle this. If I uncheck FileZilla (cause I already have it) then the box is greyed out and I cant use filezilla within xampp. But if I install it then I get a bunch of errors about the port being used, etc, etc.

I was watching a tutorial on youtube where the guy pressed the admin button on the xampp control panel and then went in and changed the port to 21. Would I need to do something like this?

Any help would be appreciated,

thanks, Bill

You dont need to install the File Zilla server that is in XAMPP, it is not needed for a testing environment.

The File Zilla in XAMPP is the FTP server, you dont need an ftp server for local testing, it would only be needed if you where setting up XAMPP on a server that you intended to use as a live production server.
