Install XAMPP 1.8.3 And WordPress 3.9 On Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

xampp folder permission xampp folder permission WP config permission adds xampp folder permission

On the new XAMPP 1.8.3 and WordPress 3.9, there are a few problems that need to be addressed before we can really use the 2 systems perfectly on Mac OS X, especially Mavericks 10.9.2. Xampp installer will install Xampp folder in the Application folder, this causes permission problems. To fix these problems, we need to add some scripts to the wp-config.php. ***When you copy and paste the codes, you may have to retype due to characters difference***

define('FTP_USER', 'daemon');
define('FTP_PASS', 'xampp');
if(is_admin()) {
add_filter('filesystem_method', create_function('$a', 'return "direct";'));
define('FS_CHMOD_DIR', 0751);
