Samba issues (fairly simple)

How do I make the "/var/www" (for apache) writeable?

I want to basically be able to edit the directory right from XP.

In the smb.conf file I have this for the set-up


[Apache Directory]
path = /var/www
writable = yes
browseable = yes
create mask = 0775
public = yes

chown / chgrp would be progs to do that. else "chmod -R a+rw /var/www" will do the same -but be careful!!! everbody can write there then. better use a user / group for that.

You could try to add 'force user' and 'force group' option to the share definition in smb.conf.
