Problem with permissions
I am a designer and wanted to put Drupal on my linux system (Ubuntu) just to muck around with. Which I have successfully done. But I can't add any modules to my files, I am coming up with permission problems. I have tried over and over to read what to do but am having no success I really need a walk through. I have used the ls -al command to find the permissions which have come up as:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 2011-02-06 07:52 sites -> /etc/drupal/6/sites
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 2011-09-14 13:47 themes
drwxr-xr-x 35 root root 4096 2011-09-14 13:47 modules
So I gather it is a permission problem but I don't know where to go from here. If anyone can help it would be great as I am about to give up.
