Your error has something to do with the integrity of the file. The server might possibly be having trouble reading the file.
Try editing your original file and upload it in ascii, not binary.
Also, the identifiers for "beginning of file", "end of file" and "ends of lines" are different on Windows and Mac and Linux so be sure to use a plain text editor and not a word processor. Try VIM or Edit Pad for Windows, also Dreamweaver has a good plain text editor built in. This way you are not adding any obscure characters that might mess up the server's ability to read the file properly.
Hope this helps.
