(I am new to Ubuntu/Linux so please bear with me).
I installed apache 2 (version 2.4.18) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I did this from a logged in user account using
sudo apt install apache2
Now, I am trying to replace the default index.html
However , I am unable to create or copy or move documents to
because I am not the owner of the folder I looked at the folder properties and it says the owner is root.
How do I change privileges so that I can use the apache server as if I (ie. the logged in user) had root-level privileges.
Thanks and happy new year.
