I am new to apache so please forgive me for asking stupid questions

I have been using Quanta Plus for a while and I been able to save and create file on a remote server that runs on apache. I just installed apache on my machine. I tested the [localhost...] and I get It Works just fine. But I cannot seem to save my projects in apache www folder. I don't if I created the project correctly. Some please help.

As a normal user, you may not have permissions to write to the apache document root directory. If you are the only user of your test machine, you could probably change the owner of the apache document root directory to you without any adverse effects.

cassium welcome to WebmasterWorld! [webmasterworld.com]

I like Quanta too,
I knew that it usually comes bundled with pack such as RH
I am curious, did you install it as stand alone?
if so where did you grab it from?
Thanks

[edit]Well, I guess I found my answer, was looking for a windows realease (I should have said so!) but there is not such a thing.[/edit]

I would edit the httpd.conf file and make DocumentRoot point to a folder in your home directory. Then, you can symlink that folder anywhere you want at any time. I do do this on my machine because I am always working on different projects and I can fire a couple bash commands to switch to another project.

A few easy steps:

1) Edit httpd.conf ( as root user ) and point DocumentRoot to /home/yourusername/public_html

2) symlink the public_html folder to your real project folder

ln -s /home/yourusername/yourproject /home/yoursername/public_html

Now you can have multiple projects and switch back and forth by recreating the symlink.

rm /home/yoursername/public_html
ln -s /home/yourusername/NEWproject /home/yoursername/public_html

There are other ways to accomplish this but IMO this is the easiest unless you are switching back and forth very frequently.

Give it a go!

Btw, I'm a Quanta user too :) Actually, Henry I think you turned me onto it in another post here :)

Thank you. I did that and it works.

But here is something that confuses me. when I create a project, shouldn't I specify the protocol as "ftp" and the host as "localhost". Or does that only works if the server is on another machine? That is not what I did right now, but it works. As long as it works, right?

But thanks for help

I installed Quanta from Synaptic Package Manager. Everytime I started running it, it said that I needed to install other applications for me to get full capabilities of Quanta and I did. Those applications are, Kompare, KImageMapEditor, Cervisia, and KLinkStatus.

Setting up quanta to use FTP would only be necessary if your files are being stored on an external server. Otherwise, it should just save locally.
However, since I'm not a quanta user, you may want to get a second opinion.
