> "koha-sites.conf" E212: Can't open file for writing

This generally means that you don't have permissions to write it where you 
expect it. I personally like vi, others prefer nano, emacs, or some other 
editor. If you are familiar with linux editors, feel free to substitute the 
editor name of your choice:
   sudo nano /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf
And then just continue on with the instructions. I put nano, because it is 
the simplest editor for a person who is unfamiliar with linux editors.

"sudo" is a command which will run the command with root permissions, so you 
can put the file anywhere you want. One should be very careful in using 
"sudo", as a mistyped command with "sudo" could have awful results.

The reason it only said, "After install, edit /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf with 
details about your site," is because explaining editing to a person who has 
never used a linux text editor is a wiki page unto itself and beyond the 
scope of a Koha installation wiki page. Additionally, because of the typical 
editor wars which erupt, we don't really wish to force any particular editor 
on anyone. The focus is putting content into a file, not how you do it.

Hope that helps.
