    Hello.

    I created a folder with character / . I understand I did it wrong but now the folder doens't show up anywhere. I know it is there somewhere so how do I access it in order to delete it?

    Thank you so much.

    From a CLI
    Code:
    cd to_the_directory
    ls -a
    rm name_of_file

    Yes, you should be able to delete the directory from the command line via SSH access per the instructions in the earlier post. Note that sometimes you need to use quotes around the name of the file or directory you are removing.

    Thank you.
