I need to make changes to
I found instructions that say
sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Ok, I got some kind of editor up now. Next step ServerName server_domain_or_IP
Ok, I added the line (with my server name, of course).
Next: Save and Exit. Seems easy enough. just about every Ubuntu help site says the same thing. ^O (writeOut is apparently the save) and ^X
Nope. ^O toggles between "Use of one more line for editing enabled/disabled"
^X toggles "help mode enabled/disabled"
I guess I'll edit this in a GUI-based editor. typetypetypetype Edits made!
File -> Save Of course it's read only.
sudo chmod +w /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
double check... still read only.
sudo chmod u+w /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
sudo chmod gu+w /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
All I want to do is edit one file. And I want the help files I read online to do what they say they do.
Why is this so hard? I know I'm a total noob with Linux, but come on! I'm not new to finding help files and following directions.
What am I doing wrong?
