I would recommend using an alternative method for verifying the site. Usually there is an option for verifying with an HTML Tag instead of uploading a HTML verification file. You would add that tag under Manage > Advanced > Site Meta Tags

You can add meta tags per page by clicking on Pages > Manage Pages.

I don't see anything there to add meta tags. All i see is page information and site settings .

If you scroll down just a little bit, you'll see what I'm referring to. There is a place to add meta tags for each page.
