I am running Wheezy Debian. When I try to create a new file in a directory other than my home directory, such as
/var/www, I get the following error in vim:
E212: Cannot open file for writing.
I assume this is because I do not have the correct privileges to create files outside of my home directory?
My user account is in the sudoers file with
(ALL=(ALL) ALL), and I have administrator access.
I'm aware of tricks such as
:w !sudo tee %, however this still results in a readonly file.
What am I missing here?
