[arm-allstar] supermon configuration editor does not work

  This is not an error. Those files are read only for a reason. It is
totally unsafe to edit those files in a web browser in the current
Supermon. The message at the top of the screen specifically tells you to
edit in Linux with nano or vi if it is a read only file. In any event this
is the best way to do it. Changing permissions on files should never be
done and if you do so you are doing it at your own risk.

We possibly may be looking at a way to allow safer editing of these files
but some files like iax.conf that have passwords will probably never be
editable via the web. I should point out that web access is NOT secure.
This uses http not https and data is in the clear out on the net.

If you have access to a web page to your server then you most certainly
should also have access via ssh using putty or another ssh client. All you
need to do is log in and edit the file. Most of these files do not get
edited that often anyway.
