You are an administrator not the owner so you just need to use sudo in a terminal

-------------------------------------------------------
sudo mkdir /var/www/folder_name
-------------------------------------------------------

replace folder_name with the name you would like for your folder

if you run:

sudo -i

you can move data as you wish. Your user is only a user, you will need sudo to move data in. If you have a desktop OS, use:

gksudo nautilus

Thank you. that command just give me one time permissin and after again back in the same situation.

use sudo when you want access to the folder.

You can change the permissions in this directory. No matter who the owner is , maybe you are the owner but you don't have the permissions for write access in this directory.

Check the results of this command

    ls -ld /var/www/

and change the permissions in this folder (or any other folder inside this folder) for you (your user).

You can do this with chmod.

    man chmod

for manual page..

If you want more help.. post back here.

I still have problem and can't change permission

where is my mistake on command below:

>sudo chmod -u 755 /var/www

rahi matini (rahimatini) said : #8

My problem solved by
> sudo chmod _R 777 /var/www/

Thanks everybody

777 is not secure in any way and may expose your website to weakness which may be attacked

@actionparsnip has right. Change the permissions again . To give full access to Others (7) is very-very dangerous.

You can make it 775 , so others have only the read and execute permissions (but not write permissions = change or delete something).
