Hello, I uploaded the phpbb3 folder after uploading, I don’t feel like using phpbb .
So, I want to delete it. I click on delete and all the files got deleted but the folders still exists, I can’t seem to remove the folders anyway.

What seems to be my problem :frowning:

BTW, Iam using FileZilla FTP Client


There is possibly a hidden file within one of the folders which would prevent the folder and all subsequent parent folders from being removed. I haven’t used FileZilla for a long time but you could check the preferences and ensure hidden files are set to “show”.

Iam now trying with CuteFTP it says, “You don’t have the permission to Perform this action”

But Iam logging in with my Primary FTP A/C

I will check the preference on FileZilla now


I you don’t have permission, that could be another problem altogether. You say you are logged in with your “primary FTP A/C” - if your attempted phpBB install was with another user account, that account will need to delete the files/directories. :wink:



I figured out the problem, there was a hidden “.htaccess” in those folder, I checked the ‘Force show hidden files’ on FileZilla and saw them.

Thanks sXi for the solving the problem :slight_smile:
