How to change file and folder permissions using XAMPP

Postby primax » 24. June 2010 12:13

hey guys.

i'm running XAMPP on windows 7 pro. i've installed helpdesk software under c:\program files\xampp\htdocs\MySite\helpdesk\

the installation guide for the helpdesk i'm using told me to change file and folder permissions for 2 subdirectories within the \helpdesk\ folder

i've done this through the usual My Computer, browsing to the directories and changing permissions, but when i right click -> click properties of those folders afterwards, permissions was reset back to what it was before I changed it.

I'm assuming it's XAMPP doing this automatically for security reasons... is there a way to set read/write access to those 2 folders via XAMPP itself?

thanks a bunch!
