    You need to make sure that the files are owned by the cPanel account user and that the permissions on the files allow them to be opened for writing.

    One possible cause of this problem would be if you uploaded or downloaded files as root, which would make the files owned by root, and then tried to edit those files using the cPanel File Manager, which runs as the cPanel account user. If you always upload or download files as the cPanel account user (such as by logging in via FTP as the cPanel account user), you should never encounter this problem.
