I was wondering if you guys think I can change the group ownership of /var/www/html with out ruining things. Oh and how do I go about creating a new group for this web work and how do I add my user to that group. Also would I need to add root to the group so that it can get in there too?... The story behind my question is this:

I do a bunch of web work on my own system and I'm doing it from the root web directory. The only way I can work on the stuff is to su to it. And I want to be able to work on it with my regular user account. So I figured that creating a new group, adding my user to that group and then changing the group permission on that directory.

TIA,
Ryan

P.S.
I'm running RH8.0
