Hello all! I am relatively new to Linux and the whole LAMP environment. I was following this excellent guide . When it came to make the info.php file I ran into a problem. I write the code: vi /var/www/info.php When I hit enter I get a blank screen with a descending line of blue tildes (~) on the left side. I figured this was creating a new php file and I insert my code into it. I went to start the code, but it would not allow the less than (<) sign to be used as a character. When I hit the question mark (?) it allowed me to type, but each time would give an error. Is there something I am missing from this step? Thanks in advance!
