How to edit a file on a deployed web site FREE hosted at 000webhost
Let's say that my web site , which calls an OData Web Service, stops working properly , showing as follows :
I can see that the Ajax call to the OData protocol based web service has returned a 404 (NOT FOUND) response, and i need to fix this bug editing the proper script file at 000webhost.
Therefore, open the CPanel of your web site:
At the CPanel , open the "Another File Manager" :
After you downloaded it , open the file with the Notepad clicking "Edit" , or use the really good editor of Notepad++ , which you can get for FREE at the Notepad++ site :
Notepad++ has a lot of functionality to offer , like testing your web pages at different browsers, and if you're using it , you will edit your file as follows :
After your done, save it and return to your account at 000webhost. Open the File Manager, and find the file that you want to replace with the new fixed version Click on "Upload File" and "Choose file" to the just edited file :
In our case, that fixed the problem, and now the requests to the OData service are getting the proper code 200 ("OK") responses :
If you get the following error while opening the 000webhost File Manager, is just because the session ended, so close the manager , and login again to 000webhost :
Then open again the file manager.
