How to easily edit multiple Apache .conf files?


I need to reconfigure a few (sub-) domains and really would like to avoid editing these virtual host .conf files with sudo nano (it’s unworkable for me).

But when editing these .conf files locally, Filezilla fails to upload them with permission issues.

My question: is there an easier / more workable way to edit .conf files then nano?


Hi @dizid,

nice catch! I’ll be sure to check it out myself as well.

One solution i found is editing with Visual Studio Code and rmate!

Hi @dizid,

I’ll recommend using VIM however if you are unfamiliar with it, it might prove more of a challenge than just using nano.

Regarding Filezilla, I’ll suggest checking the user using to connect via FTP and what permissions it has.

Kind regards, Kalin
