So far I've been really impressed with XAMPP, great job on building such a useful app!
I just installed it, but I'm a bit of a noob, though, and I am having trouble putting my website files into /opt/lampp/htdocs. I installed XAMPP as root, as per the instructions on this site, but I am not root when I use my linux box, nor do I want to be just to do web development. I suppose if I have to I can, but I'd rather just set it up for regular user accounts to be able to read/write to /opt/lampp.
Can anyone provide any insight into how I might do this? I've played around with the user/groups utility in linux, but it didn't do much. I tried adding my user account to the 'root' group with the hopes of gaining read/write access to /opt/lampp, but to no avail.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
