I am new to Ubuntu so please forgive my inexperience.
I am running Ubuntu Desktop 16.04.1 and I am set up as an administrator, I am the only user so I believe therefore I should be a root user.
However, when I try to copy a file from the root
/var/www/html and paste it in
/var/www/ directory, using any file management software (i.e. File manager, Files, Dolphin, etc.), I get the error message: Access denied. Could not write to.
Why can I not write to these directories?
Could this be because I have the automatic login option turned on?
