I am new to Ubuntu 20 and have Apache 2 running.  I am trying to drag and drop my project files to
/var/www/name-of-my-project and I keep receiving only the root user has permission to do so. Yet, it allowed me to create the directory - confusing.
 Additionally, in my project folder, I have sub-folders that for whoever is executing the app, must be able to read,write and delete files (PHP unlink). How do I fix this ?? I am confused about how to resolve it.
Thank you in advance.
