Well, let's hope that the server has at least ONE of
the more common editors ... once logged in, try
pico would be the safest choice to use if you're not
familiar with either of the other two ..
Another quesiton...I am getting into the files because the default memory limit is 8MB, and I have been getting some errors during heavy traffic...how much memory should I allocate if I have 2 busy php powered forums running on my server?
How much RAM does your server have? If those forums are all that's running you might allow as much as 1/3 of your server's RAM to be used by PHP and see how that works. You can go higher if you need to, but I'd be hesitant to at first.
As for saving the file, what editor are you using -- with pico type CTRL+O to save and CTRL+X to exit. With vi, hit escape then :wq .
