Can't edit files through FTP anymore. Stuck, please help! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there!

    So I'm trying to edit files from my website using FTP (FileZilla) and since today I'm getting an error. I am capable of logging into the server from my Hosting party and see the files. But when I try to edit the files I'm getting an error: he file "functions.php" cannot be opened. The associated programs (C:\Users\kerim\AppData\Local\atom\atom.exe) could not be found. Please check your filetype associations.

    So first of all I tried to contact my hosting party to ask what's wrong. They told me that I'm getting the error because of Windows OS and that they can't help me. I've updated Windows OS in the last days and I don't know what is causing this problem. It is disrupting my workflow so I could really use some help ASAP. I hope you can tell me what is going wrong and how I can solve this problem :).

    Greetings from Amsterdam, Kerim

  • Solved it! You just have to go to the settings and change the program with which you alter the code!
