Cannot delete folders from the FTP

Post by norriskirby » Fri Jul 17, 2015 7:44 am

Hey, it seems I cannot delete my folders from the FTP. I enabled hidden files but still saying "Access denied". Why is this? I just bought a server too so I'm a little worried.

It is very common for servers to lock down files while they are in-use. Be sure to turn the server off before making any edits in FTP.

What file are you trying to delete? Also, have you tried using the deletion tool on the File manager tab in your control panel?

When I try to delete it it says it contained reserved characters via control panel.

What exactly happens when you try to add lua files to your server? Do you see any type of error?

Try refreshing the FTP client by hitting F5 or completely closing it out and reopening it.
