To perform the requested action, WordPress needs to access your web server. Please enter your FTP credentials to proceed. If you do not remember your credentials, you should contact your web host.

Add the following line to your wp-config.php to bypass ftp (otherwise if you're interested in using FTP there are other searches to setup your FTP credentials). Here's a link to one of the many discussions about define FS_METHOD and the codex is always worth checking out.

<?php
define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');
?>

Sir if I add that define then can i send emails from localhost

That define will allow you to update wordpress and add plugins without using ftp.

Sending mail from your local wordpress instance is a separate issue. You mentioned SMPT you should probably check out their documentation. Here's a link I found doing a quick search, but I haven't tried it.

Thanks for you help sir.
