Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to edit the /var/www files using any editor like phpstorm or eclipse etc, without changing the default user/groups setting for /var/www.

Since phpstorm is invoke by a script , I dont know how to make the phpstorm part of www-data group so it get write permission.

What are other options otherwise ?
