Can't delete folders


#1

For some reason I can’t delete some folders on my hosting account.
I tried via FTP and shell.
The folders are called php, and php5libs.
I tried to compile my own custom php, but then decided I didn’t need it…

If it’s an ownership problem, you could try creating a PHP script that deletes it with rmdir(). Otherwise, you could just send support a message and ask them to remove it for you. Just be sure to be very specific when telling them what to delete. :wink:


:stuck_out_tongue: Save up to $96 at Dreamhost with 96DOLLARSOFF promo code (I get $1).
Or save $97 with TAKESEILERSCASH.

Additionally, I discovered that if you make your hidden files visible (not sure what FTP client you’re using), you’ll see probably an .htaccess and an .htpwd (or whatever it is – dont’ remember) file. After I deleted these files, I was able to remove the offending directories…
