[quote]In case anyone else needs to do this, I just accessed my server via the WebFTP option and created the file via that interface:
Manage Domains > domain name, click WebFTP
enter FTP password
click New File button at the top
enter content and file name, click disk icon to save[/quote]
I’m really glad you got your problem solved, and that the process you described above worked well for you, but a warning is in order!
It is not a good idea to edit source files on the server using the WebFTP program (and the wiki even warns of this in a couple of places). You can get away with it for a simple .htaccess file creation or modification, but if you do that with a perl script, you will have nothing but grief.
This is because the WebFTP program does not generate proper *nix style line endings, and that will break many scripts!
