my apache, php, mysql & wordpress installations run on my very own, local Mac mini (Snow Leopard) at home.
I want to use WordPress's auto update feature but I don't know how to configure my Mac to make it happen.
What I uderstood so far is: an ftp or (preferably) sftp server must be running on my Mac, right?
Well, OS X comes with ssh/sftp support and I activated it.
However, the users that can log in via sftp are the normal users that can log into the Mac locally as well. They have their homes in /Users.
So is this out-of-the-box sftp server usable for the WordPress auto update feature? If so, how would I configure it to make it work? I guess the default directory after logging in via sftp shouldn't be /Users/myhome but somewhere inside the WordPress installation path, right?
Or is OS X's sftp server a dead end here and I have to install another sftp server with its own (just sftp) user and its own home folder? And what server would that be? And how would I configure that one?
I'm sure there's already at least ONE ressource on the web (a blog article, a howto, ...) where those questions are covered. However, I wasn't lucky with Google or a forum search here. :-(
So if anybody could point me in the right direction that'll be SO great!
Thanks a lot,
