Xampp and Joomla permission problems on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Postby swipis » 04. June 2014 15:22

Hello people,

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 :)

Thank you
swipis

You must change permissions of /opt/lampp/htdocs (either permissions and/or ownership). You cannot install Xampp somewhere else.

Oups - what about your linux knowledge?

Open a terminal, change directory to /opt/lampp and issue a "chmod" command in the shell. You must prepend a "sudo" to the "chmod", because your userrights wont be sufficient for running chmod on all folders. With chmod you can change the permission of htdocs. Enter "man chmod" to get a detailed manual about this command.

Or (instead of chmod) use "chown", which does not change the rights, but the ownership of files and folders. Again, enter "man chown" in a terminal for a detailed manual.

As these are basic linux skills, you should go for a tutorial or similar documentation about linux, about the rights management and the file systems in linux. You will need all this things from time to time.
