I'm a new convert to Linux and am building a new server using Ubuntu 12.04 (home network, server will be file storage and will run PHP/MySQL for my web development projects).
I am really struggling.
The first thing I thought I'd try is to install Samba so I could share the file directories on my network, but when I try to edit the config file to name the shared directory, it says I can't save it as I'm not the owner. Looking at the permissions also tells me I'm not the owner (who is?).
I've Googled for hours and tried various suggestions, none seem to work.
