I've spent 3 days researching and reading, and I still can't solve this.
I have a vds w/ RH9.
I installed OS commerce, and I need to turn register_globals on in php.ini.
So, using putty I ssh, and, I open php.ini in vi and accidentally close vi before saving changes. Now, when I locate php.ini, it's indicating that there's also a .php.ini.swp. So, I vi php.ini, and I get
"php.ini" a new file
I'm trying and reading trying to figure out how to straighten this mess up. It would seem I need to rm this .swp, but that doesn't work... and, i need my original php.ini file to exist, but it seems to be erased.
I would be extremely grateful for any help.
