i've been having a problem lately, when i try to rename a file or make changes to it i get a fatal error, then i tried changing the file permissions but even then i get a "FileOp Failure on: /home/sitename/directoryname/filename: Operation not permitted" message. Can you please tell me wats gone wrong?

Generally this error occurs if the FTP user doesn't have enough permissions or the files/folders owns by other user. You will require contacting your hosting provider to fix the permissions/ownership of the files/folders.
