    Hi, this is probably a stupid questions, but I cannot find the folder where annoynmouse FTP uploads are stored. Some people uploaded stuff before I turned off annoynmouse access, and now I cant figure out how to delete it. I have searched every folder. Your help is appreciated.

    Do you have root access on your server?. if not you can't see the /var/ folder. It is under the main root (/). If you have only a cpanel account, the anonymous upload files are under the folder /home/user/public_ftp/incoming

    I only have a cpanel account, but there is nothing in the incoming folder. Should I contact my webhost about this?

    Why do you believe the files are still there if you cannot find them anywhere?
