I was going to start Apache/Tomcat as root but Ive rethought it and have gone against it.

How can I make my web service read/write from "/"? I keep getting permission denied exceptions...

That's the root directory (where every directory is branched off, read this intro to unix file system). Why would you allow public to read/write the root directory? It is not Windows. What you may need to do is to allow access to a correct directory from the root, not the root directory.

The reason is irrelevant :) I know the security risks/issues. If a exploit is found, the person has access to the entire system. I fully understand this.

I just want to do it :)

OK, maybe these 2 links (this and this) may clearify something. Not exactly sure how you want to set it up though.
