I was configuring a VirtualHost file on my Apache server and rather than using windows Putty and the VI editor, this time I used the SmartFTP editor. It's very cool and slick and easy but try as I might Apache would puke on the file. Finally I moved the config file to my computer and looked at it with the Netbeans editor and it had a "-" as the first character in the file which might represent just about anything. I deleted the character and moved the file back to the server and Apache purred like a kitten.

So what's with this extra character that the SmartFTP editor wants to put in secretly and not telling me?

Please post the system information from the menu: Help->About "System Information" dialog. Maybe SmartFTP has been writing a UTF8 BOM?
