Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I am new on AMAZON EC2 Server, recently I have Installed PHP and MySQL and now I want to update file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

but the problem is, when I am going to update it, it display error like – Permission denied. What is the best way to update it?

How to&Answers:

You have to change the file as root user. Do this:

sudo nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Make your changes and save with ctrl + O, Enter. Done.


I have found solution and its working…

$ sudo nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf


It would be prompting you a alert, that you can duplicate it. So

  • So duplicate it, store it on desktop with same name
  • Edit it for your use(remove comment ‘#’)
  • Save it
  • Now replace the original file with this one
  • it’ll prompt for your password, provide that

Now all updates you did are saved in httpd.conf
