Hello,

You need to make the file you are trying to edit "writable".  If you are not sure how to do this, then the best solution is to tell your web hosting provider what is the file you want to edit, and then tell them you have a PHP program (SnippetMaster) that needs to "write" to that file. Then ask them to make that file writable.

It should take them about 5 seconds to do this for you.  Smile  Once the file is made writable, then you can edit it always without any additional change. 

Basically… the file permissions need to be changed so that the PHP program (Snippetmaster) is allowed to edit the file.
