I have a dedicated server but whenever I download files from it using Filezilla, Dreamweaver etc. it always introduces double-spacing.

To work around this I am using LeechFTP but it is a huge pain in in the rear to modify a file, and upload it each time I am developing PHP, JS code.

Can anyone please, please help with this issue? Pretty please! :)

Is this for newlines?

It sounds like a a difference in OS's, where one is using \r\n (carriage return and newline) and a unix type OS using \n (newline)

Perhaps there is an option in your FTP software along the lines of (no pun) 'autodetect line endings'?

In Filezilla, make sure that your transfer type is set to 'auto'.

Transfer -> Transfer Type -> Auto
