I need help on deleting a folder.





g7clan
Right I've had this folder that I can't delete, it's really annoying.

Just wondering if someone can delete the folder for me?
Staff?
or someone to help me to do it.

it says this when trying to delete from file manager in Directadmin

"is not allowed for the process's effective uid, or one of the directories in pathname did not allow search (execute) permission."


Thanks in advance

what dir are you trying to delete, who is the fileowner, what are the permissions (chmod/permission/rwx) and did you try over ftp?

    Well it's a folder inside public_html
    I don't know the fileowner but as the UID is apache and my other files are g7clan i'm guessing thats wrong?
    The files permissions on the folders are 777 and the files that are the problem inside are set to 644, i can't change this from either ftp or direct admin.
    I've tryed over ftp yes.


Other notes:
Trying to change chmod on files gives this error (Operation not permitted) using ftp
Trying to reset file ownership gives this error (An error occured while resetting the file ownership, You must enter a valid path. eg: /public_html) using directadmin << i was in that path Embarassed

Is it the omgdelete folder that you want removed?
g7clan

sorry to be a pain Smile

Thanks very much

I removed it. I guess DirectAdmin didn't want to reset the ownership due to the weird characters.
g7clan
yeah i guess, thank you for removing it Smile
it was some gallery thing from my old site, glad thats gone, thank you again.
