Ok I installed Apache2, PHP5, MySql, phpMyAdmin, your standard lamp stack onto my freshly installed Ubuntu 11.10 amd64 desktop edition. All seems to be working properly however unless I go through the terminal and nano as root the index.html thats the server default place holder. I can't do anything else. I have a site I want to essentially drop in there for dev purposes and I can't cause I am getting permission denied errors. Any idea's?
