I have installed Ubuntu-based Mint Mate 17.2 distro. I have configured to my taste. Everything is working fine.
I have also installed Apache, PHP and MySQL individually using
sudo apt-get install. It is also working very well.
I have set my
/var/www/html folder writable. Now whenever I create any folder and php files in
/html folder I can easily browse from Firefox.
But whenever I try to copy my PHP projects from Windows 8.1/XAMPP/public_html folder to
/var/www/html they become invisible to web.
I can see my folder and files in file manager, but can't see them through Web browser. Please help me how do I set my privileges. I also find the same problem whenever I try to upload project to cpanel on my hosting server. I am not new to Linux, but am also not an expert too.
