I need to preview files being migrated before changing the DNS. The instructions were to go to Terminal and put in sudo nano /private/etc/hosts & then my password. I closed the window to find my password, now its not prompting me for the password.


I understand that terminal doesn't operate with prompts or responses, but the log-in isn't being populated as it was when I first opened up the screen.


Please note - I don't know what I'm doing here, just following instructions from HostGator and have fallen over at the first fence!


Help would be very much appreciated (in baby language!). Thank you...
