I recently updated a couple of mediawiki subdomains. I ran the maintenance tools and everything is fine. The one problem that I have is that I can't delete the .old directory that is left over. I keep getting a message that reads ".htaccess: Permission Denied". I tried replacing the .htaccess file with one that is blank, but that didn't make a difference and I tried to delete the .htaccess file itself, but permission was denied. Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? By the way, I'm using Cyberduck 2.7.3 (most recent) as my FTP client on Mac OS 10.4.8.
It's not that big of a deal because everything is working fine, I just want to clean up the stuff that I'm not using anymore.
