Ive built myself a little ubuntu server which works great, my only problem is editing config files.
I want to be able to edit files via winscp remotely, however when I try and save back I get 'access denied'. The only way Ive been able to edit the files is to use putty and then edit the files as sudo like "sudo nano /etc/apache2/httpd.conf".
Is it possible to take ownership of the entire server as my username so I can edit the files as I want without sudo through winscp, or through putty but without sudo?
Thank you in advance
