    Local Web Development


    Hi,

    I have setup MySQL and PHP on my Xubuntu box and it works fine. The only difficulty is that I cannot seem to find a nice way of working on my files and update them because you need elevated privileges.

    How do other people usually work with this? I was thinking about setting up local FTP to transfer files from a personal folder to the local host folder.

    At the moment, I am copying the files using terminal, which is not a productive way to do things! The idea is that my local machine is purely for developing - I have a test server and live server separately which I FTP to.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks,
    S

    Hello,

    You can use module mod_userdir for apache and store files to one folder (default is: public_html) in your home dir and access to them on address: localhost/~your_user_name
