    File Editor always in root

    CentOS 6.2
    Direct Admin v 1.41.1


    I migrate from Plesk to DA and I am having a lot of fun but I now run into this issue.

    Initially the DA File Editor was working correctly after "Show File" it load the file and if I need to edit I need to enter the root password.

    Now when I login the File Editor is always as root no root password is asked.

    Anybody knows how to make DA File Editor ask again the root ?

    Thanks in advance

    Do you mean the file editor only available under admin, or the file editor shown for every login?

    I've never seen either ask for root password. What file are you trying to edit?

    cd /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates/custom/
    test -e edit_files.txt && mv -v edit_files.txt edit_files.txt.moved
    or/and set it to default state of /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates/edit_files.txt

    Thanks a lot Alex an Jeff,

    Now I do understand that itīs working as it should.

    I just detect that some files donīt need the root password to edit, witch is normal.
