To the main directory? Via Terminal or Nautilus?

what are you trying to do?

peter (peter-neuweiler) said : #3

I tried it by Terminal.

The file is in my home folder and should go to /opt/lampp/Htdocs&testdb.

if you have permissions, you can simply move the file in the file manager.

If you need to do this via the terminal, you can simply use the "mv" (move) command.

eg "mv testdb /opt/lampp/Htdocs/" will move the file "testdb" in the current folder to /opt/lampp/Htdocs/

This guide has a list of how to use the terminal in one of the later chapters

Or use nautilus with "root" super user permissions to run Nautilus as root user type in a terminal or press alt+F2 and type:

gksudo nautilus

Now you can move erase copy all on your filesystem, be careful...

Marcobra, I tried gksudo nautilus. Bzt it didn't work, I didn't have the permission.
But the problem got solved via Terminal. Thanks.

Check your permissions, please open the menu System→Administration→User and groups and check the permissions of your user please give all permissions using the "Advanced settings" go to "Users Priviledges" and set all permissions
