Hello,

What ever web-app used it, must have changed the CHMOD settings for it.

Change them to 777 or something (can be done with the directadmin or ftp) and then try and delete it.

IF this doesnt work, i have a script somewhere which deletes those "undeletable" files - but i'd rather not find it unless its absolutely neccesary Very Happy

I just did the chmod thing to change it to 777 and it says the permission is denied for some reason.

This happens all the time. The "cache" folder that phpbb creates is also annoying to get rid of.

Use php "rmdir()" as explained here

It might not work (i find it sometimes doesnt) but afterwards the folder usually becomes available for deletion...
