    Hi,

    I am trying to move my Apache documents folder via this command in a terminal window through ssh:

    "mv /Library/WebServer/Documents /private/var/Documents"

    in response, I get

    "mv: rename /Library/WebServer/Documents to /private/var/Documents: Permission denied"

    Any ideas?

    Have you checked to see if you have read and write privileges checked?

    Do both the source folder and the destination sub folder need to be set up with read/write?
