I'm trying to delete directories with hidden files, and also be able to view/modify the .htaccess file through an FTP program (FileZilla). I have already chosen the option to "Force Showing Hidden Files", but it only seems to work for the root directory. After choosing this option, it still will not allow me to delete many directories or view the hidden files in them.
Other support sites refer to the issue as a "broken server" that needs to be "properly configured".
What can I do to be able to view these hidden files properly through FTP?
