Re: LAMP secure?
Usually, you cannot write to any directory outside of you home directory.
This is by design and is part of Ubuntu's security model.
This is why you cannot write to /var/www
You can only create, move, rename, delete and edit files outside of your home directory by gaining elevated privileges. This requires the use of sudo and gksudo.
Read these documents.
Now you've read those documents to move files into /var/www, open a terminal and type
Enter your password. You can now copy files into /var/www, When you have finished close nautilus.
You can also press ALT + F2 and type
to do the same thing.
This assumes you are using Ubuntu and not xubuntu or lubuntu.
Read up on file permissions and privileges. They are central to how Ubuntu's filing system works.
