I plan to develop multiple websites using Joomla. I'm using Ubuntu Desktop, and only need to access the sites and configuration files locally, while logged in to my user account.
Previously I tried this using
tasksel and set up a LAMP server with files in
/var/www, but then encountered problems with developing more than one site, and also permissions issues when editing code like CSS files.
How do I set up multiple Joomla sites, each in its own directory and database, for developing on a local desktop machine? Do I even need directories outside of
Related questions here (simplest way to add & edit files in /var/www) and here (avoid sudo when working in /var/www). This might even be a duplicate of one of those, unless there is a simpler solution for web developers.
