After i've edit a php file, I can't upload it again via filezilla FTP

I have a problem when I tried to edit the wp-config.php then uploading it via FTP.


the FileZilla return with "Timeout" error


I cannot restore the previous backup, I just made a lot of work on the website today
the last database backup two days ago.


only what I need to do is to upload the wp-config.php file with the edit.


so the question is, can I edit on the root files such as the .htaccess, robots.txt and the wp-config.php through the FTP or I can't?


as a webmaster I need a write access on such a files!


could anyone please help me with that?
