    normally you'll press escape, and you'll get the cursor to the bottom of the screen, where the prompt normally is, then you type :wq to save it and press enter, to not save it type if it's changed then type :q! and press enter, to not save something that hasnt changed just :q and enter will do, nothin obvious will hapen when you press escape

    W10: Warning: Changing a readonly file
    E325: ATTENTION
    Found a swap file by the name "~/tmp/php.ini.swp"
    owned by: etchtex dated: Fri Feb 9 10:06:40 2007
    file name: /etc/php.ini
    modified: YES
    user name: etchtex host name: lvps212-241-199-132.vps.webfusion.co.uk
    process ID: 32604
    While opening file "/etc/php.ini"
    dated: Tue Dec 19 09:57:37 2006

    (1) Another program may be editing the same file.
    If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
    different instances of the same file when making changes.
    Quit, or continue with caution.

    (2) An edit session for this file crashed.
    If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /etc/php.ini"
    to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
    If you did this already, delete the swap file "/var/www/vhosts/etchtex.co.uk/tmp/php.ini.swp"
    to avoid this message.


    What does this mean :(

    exit vi, do :q! and exit, then :

    
    rm -rf /var/www/vhosts/etchtex.co.uk/tmp/php.ini.swp
    vi /etc/php.ini
    
    Code (markup):
    make your changes

    
    [PRESS ESCAPE]
    :wq
    [PRESS ENTER]
    
    Code (markup):
    Also, are you sure you have permissions to edit /etc/php.ini ???

    You gotta be root to edit php.ini and you're not logged in as root

    use "pico"

    pico /etc/php.ini

    when you want to save changes, do ctrl-x . key "y" & enter. Done.

    For me nano is the best . you can install it using "yum install nano"

    When you are editing a file, all the instructions are right there in the the terminal
