Cannot delete WordPress directory because of wp-content/cache
Hi guys, I wanted to try and install a different blogging platform real quick and decided that I would try to make it as clean as possible. I backed up everything, including my database files and went on to deleting my wordpress directory on my server. What’s weird is that I couldn’t. I’m using Transmit on the Mac and whenever I try and delete the
wordpress’ directory, I’m getting this error:
wp-cache-11f085c105e58ffc44c04fd8ab1ab305.html: Permission denied
Error -144: remote delete failed
I’ve tried and changing my permissions for the directory to 600, 660, 666, and as a last resort 777. Everything else has been deleted from the ‘wordpress’ directory except the files inside ‘wordpress/wp-content/cache/*Various Cache Files Here*’.
By the way, since everything has been deleted, including the database, I can’t really install WordPress again to disable any plugins, etc. Any suggestions on how to solve this, or should I just contact my hosting service (Laughing Squid) so that they can just restore my server to it’s clean, untouched state? Thanks in advance!
