Hint, try logging in as root to put files in there.

folders under var are protected, so before you start putting files there do this

myaccount@mymachine:~$ cd /var/
myaccount@mymachine:/var$ sudo chmod -R 777 www/
[sudo] password for myaccount: <type your password>

Note that command you are to type are in red
hope it helps

Hint, try logging in as root to put files in there.

It is bad Idea as it compromises security.
You need only to change permission pertaining to www folder ONLY
