Thread: Error using Vi

    Error using Vi

    Whenever i try and open my my.cnf file using Vi text editor, I always recieve a warning:

    Found a swap file by the name ".my.cnf.swp"
    owned by: root dated: Tue Apr 6 21:04:58 2004
    file name: /etc/my.cnf

    After pressing any key, it takes me to the file. How do I delete the swap file it keeps finding?
