@Rebecca - make sure you are in the /backend area of the website, not in /customer.
Once you are in /backend, go to Extend -> Extensions
i cant seem to find a way to upload a file there. only to create a text file or folder. What am i missing?

Press on the Floppy Disk that has a plus sign on it, when you are in the file manager window ;)

thats awesome! thanks i donno how i didnt notice that myself.
btw i really like this file manager extension. Do you know where i can get it separately, so i can use it on my own ckeditor in a different application?
@João - I have no other ideas for now. Do you have any special mod enabled for apache, like mod security?
If you take a look in backend -> misc -> app log, do you find something related to this?
Do you have access to your server logs to see if you can find something there?
@bidorbuy they're stored in /frontend/assets/files/*
As for connector options, you can always overload the default file manager controller with your own and do all sort of configuration to it ;)
