    Hi,

    I have rented a server with cPanel on it, now I provide webhosting in Belgium as a company. Certain clients mailed me with the question: can you enable FXP transfers.

    I tried editing the file in etc/pure-ftpd.conf with PuTTy, by connecting with SSH, and then using the command: pico /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

    Success, the file was opened in a text editor. But the problem showed when i tried to save the file. It said access denied. No write permissions, but i don't understand how. I have root access with my WebHost Manager account, and I don't see any other way to do this.

    I hope you can help me.

    Friendly Greeting,
    Joey Ceunen
