    You could always SSH in and use the chmod command via ssh.

    You may also want to do a ls -l to see who owns that file. If it's anything other than the account owner, you may want to chown that file to that account owner. If that account owner doesn't own the file, cPanel will not let the user chmod (change permissions) that file.

    You can always try to modify the permissions using 'chmod' via the command line.

    I'm assuming the file has root permissions which is preventing you from modifying the permissions as a regular user.

    If you keep having issues feel free to contact our support team via the ticket system.

    WHM does not offer any file management capabilities at this time. You should be able to do this via SSH as root.
