I was trying to download some free templates last and when I tried to access my website this morning I randomly received the following error although I finally figured out that I simply need to delete the installation folder/file via ftp:
"PLEASE REMEMBER TO COMPLETELY
REMOVE THE INSTALLATION FOLDER.
You will not be able to proceed beyond this point until the installation directory has been removed. This is a security feature of Joomla!."
I don't know how to use regular ftp (noob nere), but now that I've found the file in webftp and tried to delete it I am receiving the following error message:
Cannot delete file FTP Host:/.com/installation/INSTALL in /home/webftp_dh/webftp.dreamhost.com/plugins/access.ftp/class.ftpAccessDriver.php (l.252)
Did I install some virus laden template last night or was that just coincidence? Any help would be appreciated.
