problems with sudo permissions - /var/lib/sudo owned by uid
I recently installed Ubuntu Server and put the GUI on so I can get the hang of Linux. However, I can't seem to gain access to the /var/www/ folder so I can put and edit my html files...
I tried what was on this post: Change folder permissions and ownership and I still can't move files. (Except if I use nautilus)
When I tried what Ikke suggessted, it appeared to have worked (as in no errors thrown in terminal) but when I still can't move files into the folder.
If I use nautilus and look at the permissions for /var/www it lists me as the owner (is just says my username),
Create and Delete files for folder access. And
--- for file access. If I change file access to
Read and Write it just goes back to
--- once I hit Apply Permissions to Enclosed Files.
What am I missing?
