How to delete folder with FTP?


I have a problem… I have install VBulletin board on my site using FTP, but when I try to delete all folders, it appears that some folder cannot be deleted for the following reason…:

Requested action not taken (e.g., file or directory not found, no access).

It say that, but the folder is still in my directory, I have like 10-20 folders like this, which cannot be deleted… Is there any way to delete all these folder?


Usuall this is a case of there being a hidden file (.htaccess) in the folder. Your FTP program probably has these files hidden by default and isn’t going to let you delete file you can’t see.

If you go into the menu of your program, you should be able to toggle something like “view hidden files.” Once you do that you’ll be able to get rid of them.

Well, I use CuteFTPPro from GlocalSCAPE, but I can’t find the options “View hiddens files”! Do you know about this program?

I’m not a CuteFTP user, but maybe you could try this.
