.conf problem

Hello im trying to edit my vsFTP.conf file, however whenever i try to open this in K i get that i dont have permisson to run it. so i went through the term to try and see what i could do (still dumb on that) and with no luck. My question is how can i edit the conf file. is there a way to edit it in root shell or anyother way?

If you know the root password, there should be no problem in editing vsFTP.conf.

Open a terminal and type

crumb@Helix:~$ su

Type in your root password.
Then do

crumb@Helix:/home/crumb# nano /path/to/vsFTP.conf

Save it, and close the terminal.
