File editor

Introduction

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.

Editing

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.

Download

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

Backup

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`

Cancel

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