When I try to edit httpd.conf I get the message "could not save file..."

My httpd service is dead and I can't resurrect it, what should I do?

Open a terminal
run "su -" (Give root password.)
edit the file with your editor of choice.


Open a terminal
edit the file /etc/pam.d/gdm
Comment out the fourth line so it reads:
#auth      required    pam_suceed_if.so user != root quiet

Save, exit.
Switch user to root, or login as root as desired, not as circumscribed by others who wish to tell you how to use your own computer.
Of course, use are your own risk: it is *your* computer.
