I am currently making a small php website on a server, I use the vi editor to edit some of files for small changes
However i notice that there are some php files which end with ~ sign i.e. index.php~
and when i try to open this file on the server.
it don’t work. So i know that the main file is still index.php but it makes confusion for others so i want to remove all files which are ending with ~
Is there a way which can be done so that i don’t have to do it manually every time and all these files ending with ~ gets removed.
Thanks Dan :),
Also just asking for knowledge. For this kind of thing, Can we solve this with .htaccess ??
These files are created by your text editor, changing a web server’s configuration files is not going to change your text editor.
Maybe my post was misunderstood. I conveyed two pieces of information to you:
How to delete all of the backup files (ending in ~) that vim creates when you edit a file.
How to change the vim settings so that these files are not created in the future.
Thanks again Dan, I understand your first reply as the two ways you told. the .htaccess question was for knowledge.
But your tips worked and which is great!!
