httpd.conf problem editing

Post icon  Posted 26 August 2009 - 11:40 AM

Hey, I just started getting the software that I need to program in PHP. My OS is Vista (bleh).
When following the instructions in the PHP manual on how to configure the httpd.conf file, adding the lines. It won't let me save the file. The following error message pops up:

Cannot create the C:Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\conf\httpd.conf file

Make sure that the path and file name are correct.


I can't figure out what to do. And I really wanna learn how to prgram in PHP. I'd appreciate an help, thanks.

It is Vista's stupid security "blahabla". Save the file in another location and copy/paste it into the correct directory afterwards! :) That should do it! :)
