Deployment on Linux to location with no write permissions


I have just finished integrating PhpStorm with my local XAMPP server on my Ubuntu machine. Unfortunately, I cannot deploy directly from within the IDE because the XAMPP installation is in /opt/lampp, which has restricted write permissions, unless you access the folder as root. Does anyone know of a workaround for this?


Edit: It is worth mentioning that I can of course get round it by altering the permissions of the folder permanently however I had hoped the ID might ask for my password instead for securities sake.

Just my 5 cents but why would not you create a special user with specific permissions and use in SFTP deployment in IDE?
