    Intro:

    This tutorial will help you install Nano, Nano is a text editor for Linux. Nano can edit anything from basic text files to configuration files.

    Requirements:

    • SSH Access

    • Preferably Root Access

    • Cent OS 5 (This may work on other distributions, but has not been tested by me.)
    Step 1:

    Login to your VPS via SSH using your favorite client. After you are successfully logged in via SSH enter the following command:
    Code:
    yum install nano


    Step 2:


    Code:
    =============================================================================
     Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size
    =============================================================================
    Installing:
     nano                    i386       1.3.12-1.1       base              476 k
    
    Transaction Summary
    =============================================================================
    Install      1 Package(s)
    Update       0 Package(s)
    Remove       0 Package(s)
    
    Total download size: 476 k
    Is this ok [y/N]: 
    You should see that, You want to enter "y" and then press enter.

    Complete:

    If you see the following you have successfully installed Nano:

    Code:
    Installed: nano.i386 0:1.3.12-1.1
    Complete!
    


    How To Use Nano:

    If you would like to create a blank file, just use the command: nano

    If you want to edit a file navigate to the directory to where the file is located then use the following command: nano "filename.ext"
    You will want to replace "filename.ext" with the actual filename and extension without the quotes.
