That's incorrect. Legitimacy is not an issue for British citizenship if she was born on or after 1 July 2006 (24. Meaning of "parent").

She can, if she has a parent who is a British citizen at the time of her birth.

Read the link for "meaning of parent".

She can, only if it is proved that she is the child of a British citizen father.

See also Changing or adding a parent’s details to a birth record.

[i]24.2 In relation to a person born on or after 1 July 2006 and who is conceived on or before 5 April 2009,
•
the mother is the woman who gives birth to the child, and
•
the father is either:
(a) the mother’s husband, if any, at the time of the child’s birth,

THE PROBLEM HERE IS THAT I WAS NOT MARRIED TO HIM ,WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN AND I AM NOT MARRIED TO HIM NOW EITHER....SO WITHOUTH BEING MARRIED,CAN HE APPLY FOR BRITISH PASSPOST FOR HER???

One needs to be a British citizen before one can apply for a British passport.

As per OP the father is not listed in the child's birth certificate. So the question is, whether OP has any other acceptable documentary evidence to prove that the British citizen (father) is actually the father of the child? If there is none, the relevant link - explaining how the father's name can be added to the birth record of the child - has also been provided.

Since the OP (mother of the child) is not a British citizen, the only way the child can acquire British citizenship is through the British citizen father. If the OP has documentary evidence of the relationship of the child with the British citizen father (through whom the child may have automatic acquisition of British citizenship), only then an application for British passport can be submitted.
