SU AND ROOT ( the difference )
There have been questions , what is the difference between “su” and “root” . . well, the difference is minimal but still very important.
As you login as “root” right from booting the system, all the privileges are set to root, what makes your system more vulnerable to your own mistakes and those wishing to enter your system.
Add permissions to /var/www in ubuntu
You might be having troubles adding files and folders to the /var/www folder of Ubuntu installation. Sometimes various other folders also require root permission to perform some action on it. So in that case you can use the following command.
If you are using mysql on Debian / Ubuntu Linux then use following command:
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop sudo /usr/bin/mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables & mysql -u root mysql UPDATE user SET password=PASSWORD('your_password') WHERE user = 'root'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; quit; sudo pkill mysql_safe (or kill -9 pid) sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart
