I was playing around with a virgin DSVR (vs300) account for a few hours during the week, just getting php and MySQL ready for use. Vi was really annoying, giving me the dreaded A B C D routine when the arrow keys were pressed in insert mode.

vim in compatible mode, I could’nt find a vimrc anywhere so I placed this into ~/.vimrc

set nocompatible<br>set backspace=indent,eol,start<br>set background=dark<br>syntax on<br>set history=50<br>set ruler<br>set noautoindentCode language: HTML, XML (xml)

much better!
