    I am new to the forum.. But I have a question.. I had someone install a package on my server and it would appear it is up to me to edit the file and change the layout.

    I have never used ssh.. or superuser on my dedicated server..

    how do I view and edit the Config.pm located /user/local/????/

    For OSX use rBrowser from rbrowser.com - It simply owns!

    For PC use Putty from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

    This will make it a lot more easier than using telnet

    then
    type this...

    pico /user/local/Config.pm

    do your stuff... the Ctrl+O to "write out" or save it.

    may have to reboot apache maybe? depends what config file it is...
