unable to delete files / folders

I am unable to delete files / folders from File Manager(frihost), its telling permission denied, how can i delete the files / folders?
amagard
I suggest to first check file permissions: who is the owner of those files ? And what are their attribute settings ?

Have you tried to delete them in FTP? Like FileZilla? That should work.

Are you unable to delete all files and folders or just some of them? If you try to delete a folder you need to have permission to delete all files in that folder. You haven't answered amagard's question who's the owner of the files/folders that you are trying to delete.

Note that some folders can't be deleted. The stats and awstats folder for instance. It might look like they take up a lot of space, and they do, but it doesn't count towards your quota so it is nothing to worry about.

@tamil. Amagard's suggestion about file permissions is a good one. If you don't already know this, this is how you can change the file permissions in FTP: (FileZilla)
