    the folder Public_html is creating itself automatically after I delete it and with a planet icon(not folder icon) with 0000 Permission
    and every time I try changing the permission it changes and then when I refresh it is back

    please what can I do

    Why are you trying to delete the public_html directory though? There are proper ways to do what you want, and incorrect ways. Like trying to delete it from the File Manager.

    The problem is that it is unchangeable permissions and can't create any sub folders Screenshot_2014-07-08-20-33-31~01.jpg Screenshot_2014-07-08-20-33-31~01.jpg

    Hello,

    if public_html is 0000, you'll need to change the permissions to 0711 to make and adjust anything under that directory. If you're unable to change those permissions, you'll need the root user on that server to make this change.

    You apparently created an addon domain or subdomain and now want to remove it, is that accurate? Deleting this directory is not how you do that.

    We can provide you with more assistance, if you will provide more details on what you're hoping to do, and how you got there.
