This isn't strictly an wordpress query but it is getting in the way of me using it properly.
Before I started uploading WP, I had an old folder uploaded to my site which never worked and was only a trial run. I've since successfully uploaded WP and tried to delete the old folder using filezilla. But, it's only deleting the files and not the folder. As result when I or anyone types in my URL the first thing that we're faced with is an option of indexes, the old one which leads nowhere, and the wordpress one.
