I am trying to create a local website on my Mac. I found that the default folder is /Library/WebServer/Documents/; so anything which I will paste here should be published. However, when I start copying my web files and folders in this file, i need to periodically use chmod. This makes me feel that I am doing something wrong.
Here is my question: if I frequently need chmod or sudo to do anything in these folders, does it mean that I should have pointed Apache to some other location on my drive where I have more 'natural' access?
