Hi,

I have moved all of my folders over to apache server /var/www , but now it shows permission denied.  What are the right permissions to set to a:  allow for me to edit the files as sudo and b. allow users to use the web app from their browser?

THanks

Have you got a suitable directory block in you Apache httpd.conf  e.g.

<Directory "/var/www">
   Order Allow,Deny
   Allow From All
   Options Indexes MultiViews 
</Directory>

Does the following file exist?

/var/www/lorro/index.php

If it does what are the permissions on it and the directory: lorro

What is the DocumentRoot in your httpd.conf, and what php handler have you configured.

It does exist in this directory.  I also setup a Virtual Host for it as I will have a few url's.  
How do I setup the php handler?

I just updated the permissions and no longer says denied.
