view story

http://askubuntu.com – I am a total newbie and has seen lots of tutorials on the net but still can't solve my problems. I installed LAMP+PHPMyAdmin the following way: sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ phpmyadmin Here are my issues: 1) I need to change my document root. I need to set it to /data/WWW. I tried the "ln" function, it creates a shortcut but when I access http://localhost it gives me 403 error. I believe there is some permissions issue but have no idea how to solve it. Please help! 2) Trying to access phpmyadmin via http://localhost/phpmyadmin does not work. How do I access it? Do I have to create some (HowTos)
