    Help with E212 error


    I am getting the E212 error whenever I try to create new files in my apache server directory. No matter how I try save either .html or .php files, I always get this error, even when using :wq!

    Any ideas? Thanks for any help!

    It sounds like a permissions issue. If your apache server directory is outside of your home directory you will need root access to modify or create files.

    Use sudo vim filename instead of just vim filename
