I also set up Filezilla on my MacPro 10.6 expecting to upload
different themes (both zipped files and open folders) into the Moodle
application themes folder in Bitnami but I have been unsuccessful? Can
anyone comment or direct me to the documents?
Could you let us know which error appears when trying to upload files? In order to upload files to your server, this is the guide to follow.
I also set up a Bitnami Moodle install on my MacPro as the
development server yet I wonder if it is possible to have both Moodle
installatiuons linked directly and building training courses without needing to use Filezilla?
I am afraid that's not possible (at least in an easy and maintainable way), as they are using different databases. For syncing some files, maybe
rsync could do the job: http://www.tecmint.com/rsync-local-remote-file-synchronization-commands/
Hope it helps.
