How to avoid using sudo when working in /var/www?
I've been around Ubuntu for not too long now and I'm getting tired of a thing I used to accept. When I installed Apache and PHP on Ubuntu it was done with
root meaning it got permission. So I changed that to me. Now I've just copied a big number of files, (PHP), to be viewed and edited in these directories. Now my problem: I can not view the files from
var/www/ because it requires, for some reason, everyone to have access to the files. Not only me, or my group but everyone. No one else is using the computer but me, so I'm cool with it. Though I need a command to change ALL files permission recursively. When I've browsed the questions already been answered I find for example
chown -R viktor:viktor /var/www/, or using
sudo as well.
This worked on the single
var/www and the folders inside but not the files inside the folders and very odd I notice I can't do the same thing on example
