View Full Version : Permissions for /library/webserver/documents?

Sep 19, 2012, 09:17 AM
I'm running OS X Mountain Lion, having upgraded from Lion. I've set up Apache/PHP/MySQL per the instructions from coolestguyplanettech.com (http://coolestguyplanettech.com/downtown/install-and-configure-apache-mysql-php-and-phpmyadmin-osx-108-mountain-lion). Everything went well, save for one problem: I'm unable to save files to the /library/webserver/documents directory without first providing a password. This causes problems for my web applications (mostly BBEdit). I know I can create a web root folder under my user directory (and have re-enabled the one from Lion), but I prefer to use the shared web root folder because I can easily match the pathing to the project I'm working on right now.
So, how do I change the permissions/settings on the the /library/webserver/documents folder so I no longer have to provide a password in order to save files?
