    When using file manager to edit files in the public_html directory my clients are receiving the error message below. This message only occurs under the public_html directory and not in the root directory of the clients. The public_html directory is set to 777. Any help would be appreciated.

    /path/to/file/filename.html File Saved

    This probably won't make a difference, but the public_html directory should be 750 not 777. The www would be 777 since it's actually a symbolic link.

    The file they are trying to edit is probably nobody owned. Check the file ownership as well.

    The ownership of public_html must be user :user and permission must be 755 .

    chmod 755 public_html

    Thank you very much angelina_holy & shashank. You were both correct. File Manager works fine now.

    Thanks again.

    Actually that is incorrect. The proper setting is as follows

    userid:nobody
    750

    I agree with you. That's the correct setting for public_html directory.

    4 of the most active posters here can't all be wrong. ;)

    CPanel changed the group and permissions quite a while ago. If owner of username and group of nobody with permissions of 750 doesn't let you save the file, something else is wrong.
