FTP problems deleting folders

I'm trying to delete a folder on my server where I mistakenly uploaded a forum but I'm getting a "folder is not empty" message and my ftp client refuses to remove the folder from my webspace.

I suspect there may be an .htdocs file in there or something but either way, none of my clients will show that any files exsist in said folder.

Does anyone know of a way to force Cute ftp or Dreamweaver's ftp client to delete the folder and all it's contents?

You should be able to configure cuteFTP to show hidden files - check all the setting or somewhere to add/modify the list command to add ls -la.

The same Q was asked earlier today here.

The search facility is a very useful tool Wink

Thanks Peter.

That thread was very useful, but to be fair, I wouldn't expect to find a question about deleting FTP files in customer feedback. Smiley
