i read that i should up the max client in apache but being a total noob i do not know how to do that, the path in all the tutorials i read always says it dosent exsist when i try to open it via the command line.
Opensuse may not store the config file in the same location as used in the tutorials. To find the config file, open a terminal and enter this command: find /etc -type f -name <file name> (where <file name> is the name of the config file you want to edit). /etc is the directory in which config files are stored.
I also have no idea how i go about editing the file or saving it as the only tutorials i see explain about vi editing, could anyone help me please?
Once you find the file, you will need to be root to edit the file. You don't need to use vi if you aren't familiar with it yet, if you are using the KDE desktop. You can use a GUI editor, such as kate.
su to root
enter root password
kdesu kate /etc/apache/config.file (to start kate GUI editor as root and open the apache file, assuming it's located at /etc/apache/config.file). You will be prompted for the root password.
make your edits, then save.
I'd make this suggestion. Don't delet any lines or change any lines. If you want to delete a line, comment it out instead, then enter the new line directly under the commented line. That way you can easily restore the file to it's original by deleting your additions. Do the same for changing lines: comment out the line you want to change, then add a new line underneath it. You might also add comment lines at each edit, giving the date you added your lines so they're easy to find.
