I installed Ubuntu 12.04 today and I would like to use XAMPP on this OS.
I downloaded the installation file, extracted that in Opt directory and tried to start it from the terminal. It started fine from the terminal. To edit my files, I downloaded Geany. Now when I try to save file through this text editor in the htdocs folder of XAMPP, it says "Permission Denied". It was also not allowing me to make a subfolder in htdocs but I made that through Terminal. I want to know how to save the file?
Please give me some additional commands too (like deleting files, renaming files..). Would I need to type in commands in Terminal for everything I need to do in this Root directory?
