    Samba

    ok, nevermind the samba thing. Got that working. Is there a way to allow my samba users to create/edit files from windows? Im looking for a way to edit my html/php files from my windows box.

    just make a share through samba for the directory where your webfiles are stored.

    I did make a share. The share doesnt allow me to create files on the linux machine from my windows machine.

    Ok, I forced my unix user to root, forced all permissions to 777, forced my group to root, set all the directories in /var/www to 666 and 777 recursively. And none of this is working to allow me to edit/create files from my windows computer. Is there another way for me to do this?

    In the share definition in /etc/smb.conf, you have to add the line 'writeable = yes' to enable writing to the directory. You can also use the 'write list = ' to set which users can write to the directory and which users cannot.
