I've just installed my first linux distro (mandrake 9), so this is all new ground for me... After installing Mandrake I used the software installer to install Apache and PHP - I want a setup purely for testing my php-based website.
Now... Apache seems to be working ok as http://localhost
gives me the standard successful Apache install page. What I want to know is how I can add my website files to the server path /var/www/html without logging in as root, or do I have to login as root each time I want to do this?
btw, you may have guessed from my question, but I've no experience in conf files or general webserver setups - I've always let my webhost worry about that before, but i'd be grateful of any helpful url's to get me up to speed.
