suse newb has a simple question...

Ok i am trying to get an apache server going. and i used to have Ubuntu server where as you could edit config files with a command such as…“sudo nano /etc/apache2/…” it would open a text editor and would allow me to make changes… it was very nice since chmod is too risky…

any help on what to do would be helpful.


Hello Jesse and welcome to the openSUSE Forums. In Gnome this will get a file open that is owned by root, such as the Apache config files:

gnomesu gedit /path_to/filename

I mention “gedit” because it is installed by default whereas nano isn’t. But nano is in the repo’s and you can install it using Yast → software → software management.
