Here is what you need to do:

1. If you already didn’t, download the Wordpress package and unzip it
 
2. On your web server, make a database for Wordpress. Also create a MySQL user who will have all privileges to access and modify it.
 
 
3. Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.
 
4. Open wp-config-sample.php file in any text editor. Then according to Editing wp-config.php, fill in your database details. It is required to generate and use your secret Key password.
 
5. Copy-paste your Wordpress files in your preferred location on the web server. In this case it would be /var/www/
 
 
6. Access wp-admin/install.php and run the WordPress installation script.
 
7. Or type localhost in the address bar and go.
WordPress in installed!

I cannot paste the folder inside www folder. 

The paste option is greyed out. Ctrl+v does not work either.

What can I do?

Open the terminal and type "sudo nautilus". 

Type your password. A new window will open with root access.

You can copy whatever you like.

One more thing, if you are on a Linux system, you should try to make yourself comfortable with the terminal. Nautilus is the way to go with beginners i agree but in the long run, you will have to come to the terminal. For example you could copy paste files using > sudo cp file1 file2. Here's a good way to start, set this as your wallpaper.

It was high time someone told me this because I was starting to feel the same way too.

The terminal and its powers fascinates me but it makes me nervous at the same time.

Great upload though, I guess it will help me a lot while setting up WordPress.

Thank you bug_fix!
