however, I am getting:
RTNETLINK answers: file exists

what am i doing wrong?
If you have removed Network Manager, your interfaces file will also need a gateway and DNS nameservers:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.117 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 #or whatever your router address is dns-nameservers 192.168.1.1 22.214.171.124
Then get the system to re-read and use the changes:
sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup -v eth0
ping -c3 www.google.com
