Edit files on the server

To edit files that are writable by the bitnami user, use the tools described in the section on uploading files.

To edit files that require administrator privileges, such as system configuration files, use the steps below to edit files as the root user:

  • Log in to the server console

  • Use the nano editor:

    $ sudo nano FILENAME
    
  • Edit the file.

  • Type “Ctrl+X” to exit the editor, followed by “Y” to save the changes.
