I'm fairly new to Linux, but I managed to get XAMPP running pretty well with little fuss under Ubuntu Server 6.10.
Everything works as it should, but looking for a little advice on sharing the htdocs folder with Windows. (For editing PHP files and so on)
I made a Samba share, and I'm able to view it from my XP box. What's getting me though is writing.
All of the files are owned by "nobody", which I need so PHP files can edit themselves. (Example, SMF forum package installs)
When I create a file, it's given my user account as an owner. If I try to edit an existing file, I'm denied saving because I don't own it.
Anyone have a good solution for this? I'm 99% sure I'm just missing sonething obvious but...
