I am trying to develop a WordPress theme locally on my Mac (running OS X 10.7.3) running MAMP Pro, and am having trouble utilizing FTP.
I know in 10.7, FTP has been deprecated, but was able to get FTP up and running via this tutorial: http://osxdaily.com/2011/09/29/start-an-ftp-or-sftp-server-in-mac-os-x-lion/
Now, it accepts the FTP credentials, but says it cannot find the wp-content directory.
Via MAMP Pro, I've got it setup with a bunch of subdomains. For example this wp install is at something like this:
I'm wondering if it is trying to find the wp-content dir at "ryankeefer.computername.local" rather than where it's actually at (wptest.ryankeefer.computername.local). Any ideas on how to get it pointed to the right place?
I can obviously get around the FTP portion for adding and upgrading plugins to the wp-content/plugins/ directory directly, but would like to have the FTP option as well.
