No text editor in XAMPP terminal

Postby Xamax » 11. December 2018 19:17

I have installed the XAMPP VM version 7.2.3 on Mac OS 10.13.3 (High Sierra). Everything installed easily and works like a charm except for one thing: when I launch the Terminal I find my self in a Linux environment (Debian) but there seems to be no text editor. I like using vi and it usually comes with any Linux environment, but I can't find it on the XAMPP VM. I get a "bash not found" message.No luck with any of the other text editors either (emacs, nano). How can I get vi to work in the XAMPP terminal? I want to be able to edit text files directly from the XAMPP terminal.

Here is a screenshot .
