    Hello.

    I have had this problem when trying to edit PHP files in cPanel...

    Whenever i create a new PHP file now i can put the content in once, then when i come to edit it after editing other files where it says "File Type:---------" it says "File Type: Sendmail frozen configuration - version esigns".

    I can edit perfectly well using Net2Ftp as i dont like using Windows Ftp as it is annoying.

    Please can you shed any light on this.

    Thanks In Advance.

    Hmm, I'm not familiar with that error but if you have shell access you can try the following:

    chmod 755 "file"

    If that doesn't work it sounds like your having a file transfer issue. Try using the a different FTP client. For example: FileZilla filezilla.sourceforge.net

    Well I don't SSH access as I am on a host.

    I have had my account reset as I HATE FTP with a capital H. So I am back with cPanel Fully NOw!!!!!


    I think it was because some files had been deleted that came with the account.

    Your host should give you SSH access if you request it. If not, I recommend looking for a better host ;) I'm not sure if there is a way to do it with Cpanel, but if you want to stay in web for very long, I recommend learning FTP. Use Filezilla and I bet that you will become much happier with FTP. It really is an easy way to transfer files once you get the hang of it.

    Apparently you are a little bit confused as it is not actually FTP that you hate but rather
    the FTP program that you are using that you don't like!

    It sounds a lot like from your first post that you have been trying to use the default built
    in FTP in Windows instead of any real FTP client program so it's no wonder you are disillusioned! :D

    There are many good FTP programs out there which are infinitely better than the FTP built into
    MS Windows by itself and even some FTP browser plugins you can get for a number of
    different web browsers.

    Check out the following link for a list of programs you can get:

    I do mean FTP programs

    I have tried Smart FTP Client and net2ftp the web based version

    But it is all sorted now!

    My host does not allow SSH access because they had a bit of trouble with it a little while back. But I am on the Free package so that could also have something to do with it.

    Thanks for the help.
