Trouble saving and closing on my digital ocean console

So I’m trying to increase the max file size on my wordpress site and I’ve opened: “/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini” and made the needed changes but now when I try to save and exit (control x) it just says “recording” at the bottom of the console window.

I’ve never had this issue before and no matter what I do I am unable to get out of that editing screen. I don’t want to do a hard reboot or anything because I’m not sure if it will save my changes. Can anyone advise me on what to do?

I would recommend using SSH to connect to your droplet, I would use the web console only for emergency things not for daily tasks:
