Problem with Apache


I've got a little problem, I've installed xampp to /opt/lampp, but I can't edit the files so i've go to doit all through the console which is a bit of a pain, is there any way I can allow the files in the lampp folder to be edited?

Thanks Josh

What errors do you get when you try to edit the files? Does your user account have write permission to these files?

I think it is because i don't have the right permissions, but i can't change them either.

when i try to drag and drop into the folder i just get circle with a diagnle line through it.

Go into a terminal and do an ls -l of the directories in which you want to modify files. You may need to chmod/chown some or all of them so that your user has access to them. You might have to do this as root (the supuser on *nix systems) if that is who owns the files. But bear in mind that certain things (binaries and config file) should be owned by root. I'd suggest looking for a good tutorial on Unix style permissions and an Apache tutorial. A Google search should give you plenty of resources.
