I cannot delete a folder.....





k10000s
I tryed a lot to delete a folder in my account via ftp, panel and explorer.

But every time I got an error, 'Directory not empty'.

the path is ".../public_html/scripts/1"

Can anyone please delete the forder?

Thanks.

May be the permission should be set to 777 to do so. but not sure. give it a try.

I tried to change the permission but it doesn't work.
And the UID and GID is "apache".

This tutorial will help you fix your problem.

Thank you for inform the tutorial, but it doesn't work.

I followed the tutorial.

The tutorial said that I will get error when I run the php file, but I didn't get an error.

I may did wrong....

I don't know about PHP well, so can anyone help me out?

The fact is that, if you do this the right way(i.e. exactly as it was specified in the tutorial) you will be able to delete the folder without problems as I had the same problem before.

You need not be an expert at php for this

I solved this problem with the second PHP method at the page linked above.
Thanks for everyone who try to answer my question.

Even u could fix ur problem, for all guys, in some cases is necessary that the folder to be deleted must be empty to avoid any error message

I did not know that the method would work in the whole directories in my account. To avoid this, you should put fixmode.php in the folder you want to delete. I had to find out and redefine all the different folder's permisions that was under aphach.
