I've recently installed apache, php5 and mysql in ubuntu on my laptop for development purposes.
For my first project I decided to take a look at the silverstripe CMS.
I downloaded it put it in the www folder that I created for it and am now trying to install it. These are the remaining file access errors I'm getting before installation will continue.
Is the .htaccess file writeable? User 'www-data' needs to be able to write to this file:
Is the mysite/ folder writeable? User 'www-data' needs to be able to write to this file:
Is the tutorial/ folder writeable? User 'www-data' needs to be able to write to this file:
Is the assets/ folder writeable? User 'www-data' needs to be able to write to this file:
How do I give write permission to this user and how do I create the "www-data" user if it does not exist already?
I'm new to linux so please don't assume I know where to find any files I might need to edit.

Open up a terminal window and cd to where your www directory so something like cd /home/gareth/www/ and once you are there you can do a chmod 777 on the project folder.
Check out this for a nice tutorial on how to use chmod on unix/linux - http://catcode.com/teachmod/index.html
