    Is there away to force a delete of a file through File Manager? One of the wordpress plugins left some files behind, and when I delete them they come right back.

    If you don't have root access to run commands from shell, changing ownership of files is not possible. You'll need to speak with your host.

    If you do, something like this should work to set owner to you so that you can delete the files.

    Code:
    chown -R sitemaker:sitemaker /home/sitemaker/public_html/wp-content/plugins
