Can't delete folders


#1

I have uploaded a PHP Photo Album some time ago and tried to delete it. All the files are gone except two folders that seem empty. I think it contained ‘include’ files.
Everytime I try to delete them one by one with CuteFTP, I get the message:

550 include: Directory not empty
ERROR:> Requested action not taken (e.g., file or directory not found, no access).

Both folders are set as 777

Anyone know how they can be deleted?

I am not familiar with CuteFTP, but somewhere in its configuration options you should find an option to enable the display of ‘hidden files’. Enable this and check if the directories you are trying to delete are indeed empty.

that worked thanks so much!

Unhiding files revealed some other files in the root:

.alias
.bash_profile
.bashrc
.cshrc

What are these for?

Shell setup files.


They hired more support help.
