    Access the computer library folder rather than the user library folder with Terminal
    I am trying to chmod a folder in the library of my mac but i can only get to the folders below the user level.

    Does anyone know what I need to do?

    I need:
    Library/WebServer/Documents/... etc

    I can only get:
    user/me/... etc

    cd /Library/...
    Notice the beginning / ?
    What file do you need to chmod? You sure you know what you're doing?
