File editor


The file editing page allows you to edit a configuration file. For some files, the page will display a simple text box, while others will be displayed with syntax highlighting and additional options.


The screenshot below illustrates a basic edit example for the external_metadata.cfg file. This file can be edited as with any normal web text area.



There is a download link should you want to keep a backup copy of the file on your workstation, or edit it there.


The file manager automatically backs up files when they are saved unless you deselect the option to retain a backup. This allows a previous version to be restored.

Backup files have a timestamp appended to their name, for example the file `file-name-200609270849.cfg` is a backup of `file-name.cfg`


Click cancel if you want to discard the changes and keep the file unmodified.
