i need some help here. i just installed xampp into default xampp directory (/opt/lampp/), after tht i was trying to install joomla but i face to the problem that i cant make any changes in that location (/opt/lampp/) because of root and i dont wanna mess with permisions . so i open file browser as root (sudo nautilus command) and make website folder in htdocs and extract joomla files. everything is working except i cant make any changes in joomla administrator page because of root. maybe i can get some tips here please, or maybe i can install xampp in home/myname/ folder under my ownership?
OS ubuntu 14.04 lts and xamp x64 1.8.3-4 and joomla 3.3
