I'm using OS X Snow Leopard. I have a web application hosted locally in the web server folder with _www user and _www group.

I'm unable to edit those files with my local user, who is part of the group admin.

The best option is to add your local user to the _www group ; that's what groups are there for. Being administrator doesn't mean you own other user's files. You could of course override this using sudo, but this is bad.

Bottom line: add your local user to the _www group and make the files in the web server folder group-writeable ( chmod -R g+w /path/to/we/server/folder/ )

See this answer on how to add your local user to the _www group.
