Hello, so I'm trying to mirror some website from my LAMP server to my Windows 10 PC.
I am using WAMP server to do this but I have huge problems with permissions.

Apache can't seem to write stuff anywhere. The service runs as local system and the SYSTEM user has full control. I also tried giving EVERYONE full control, it still doesn't work. I keep getting errors like this:

Warning: error_log(../xxxxxxxxxxx/00000b015e503ae39081e38d06f1652e822b20171116.log): failed to open stream: Permission denied in B:\Siti\xxxxxxxxx\xxx.php on line 708

Open in new window

I also tried running Apache as a local administrator, still no go.

There must be a way to make this work. I have a CentOS vm on and I could use that, but it would be handier for me to go full local.
Also, I can't stand things not working.
