This question already has an answer here:
I just installed a fresh Ubuntu 16.10 and just finished setting up LAMP Stack. currently my Sublime Text keeps asking me authentication every time I edit a file.
Lamp Stack was installed using root user.
my /var/www/projects currently have www-data:www-data for it to work properly.
but I can't edit the files freely it keeps asking my password every time I hit save.
should I install Sublime Text as super user?
