Hi,


I'm trying to edit the httpd.conf file to allow .asp files for SSI
(i will be hosting my site on an NT server, but want to work on it on my mac at home)
using the Terminal i open the 'etc/httpd/httpd.conf' with pico & edit the relevant lines to:


AddType text/html .asp
AddHandler server-parsed .asp


But when I try to 'write out' or 'exit' i get the msg " [ Cannot open file for writing ]"


what am i doing wrong?
