Using AER on my local machine

I want to use AER on my local machine. I am using XAMPP to run an Apache browser and mysql. I have the access info for mysql and Aer likes that, but I'm not sure how to enter the local data for the Apache server. I don't really have a login and password as I can edit the site as my user account and run it on a browser that accesses it as root. Th path to the root is a localhost path to the directory where my site is and the location is the path to that directory. When I enter this info AER, it complains that it wants an SFTP connection, which I don't have to my local machine.

My goal here is to generate and edit forms locally and upload them to my site.

    Hi Kenoli,
    Because we’ll be dealing with passwords etc. Probably best not to do this on an open forum, send me an email to [email blocked] and we’ll see if we can get it sorted out for you.
