    Hi

    I have a Folder that I can't seem to delete..

    I believe it is a permission related problem..

    Id there is a number like 777 or 666 that will do it could you please let me know..

    All advice appreciated..

    thank you..

    If you cannot delete it, the owner of the directory probably is not correct. Not permissions.

    chown -R usernamehere:usernamehere /home/usernamehere/public_html/foldernamehere
