Joomla 2.5.6/ unable to edit files

asked Nov 9, 2012 in Website Builder by Donald (2,780 points)
I haven a site running on Joomla 2.5.6 and my problem is that I haven’t  been able to edit the original files. I have PHP support and when I upload any extension component, module, or plugin my FTP access gives a 48 48 Apache access error. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Many thanks in advanced

Try running  PHP as CGI module or use suPHP. Check with your hosting provider which should you use.

As a workaround try changing the owner of your files using your cpanel, and if you have SSH access you could do this with CHOWN:
chown -R owner:group /path-to-your-website-folder/public_html/
