I'd like to be able to write to the XAMPP directory so that I can run PHP scripts from there rather than my "Sites" user folder.
How can I do that? I'm using 1.7.3.
Currently, if I try to write (copy or save files to) to the XAMPP Application directory, I get a file permissions error. I have a similar issue with the wordpress code editor. (It says to make the file "writeable".)
