How do I connect to my local computer so that is appears as a Remote Site - is that actually possible.
Only by running an FTP or SFTP server on your machine. Depending on your OS, the following is true:
Windows: Windows does not support UNIX-like permissions (CHMOD) at all.
UNIX-like OS: While you theoretically could CHMOD through the FTP server (if it even supports it), you're far better off simply using a shell like bash to issue the CHMOD command.
Also note that FTP has NOTHING AT ALL to do with MySQL. MySQL is something completely different.
