for some reason, i can't delete files from my www folder

is there any way to delete files from the www folder without completely deleting the folder



because, when i try to update my website, it wouldn't let me override my index.php file

when i deleted the www folder, made a new one, and reuploaded the php file, the page did not update
HELP!!!!

Actualy, main folder is public_html not www folder. WWW folder is only copy of public_html and if you want to replace your files then do it in public_html folder.

WWW folder is NOT a copy of public_html, but is a symlink to public_html.

Symlink = Symbolic Link, used as part of the Linux operating system. For Windows users, it is the equivalent of a shortcut, except you can specify paths through symbolic links.

e.g.

/home/username/public_html/...

Then you have a symbolic link to this at:

/var/www/~username/...

Say you had a file like this:

/home/username/public_html/images/funnystuff.jpg

You can access it via:

/var/www/~username/images/funnystuff.jpg
