Dear all,

I have installed XOOPS 2.2.3 and CBB 3.04. After that, I would like to rebuild the whole web site. I tried to remove all the files/folders by FTP. However, I cannot remove the folders...

<home folder>\uploads\newbb
<home folder>\uploads\newbb\thumbs

I discovered that both folder are created by an owner "www" and its right is "755". I cannot remove those folders by FTP and Telnet.

Would you mind suggest how can I change the folder attribute and remove it from my site?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Cannot delete folder created by CBB

Using IE6 and ftp... this is how I change permissions.

Right click on folder and select properties then edit permissions. save...

Good luck... BS

Check your website management tools if you can use your control pannel to change ownership of the folder.

Otherwise its most likely an issue of the context the webserver is running und and you might need to contact your host to change the ownership.

In the past i had to contact my host when this occasionally happened ... but these days they put a function into my controlpanel to reclaim ownership with the proper user.
(however since than it did not happen anymore i just realise )
Sorry, this signature is experiencing technical difficulties. We will return you to the sheduled signature as soon as possible ...

Thanks for you all kind help

Finally, I found a solution, I upload a .php program with following code

("<home dir>/uploads/newbb/thumbs"0777);


I able to delete the folder with ownership "www".

Thanks all of you kind help again.
