[resolved] How to delete child theme folder (4 posts)

    I used this plugin to do some testing.
    Now I want to delete the child theme folder which was created by this plugin. It's not possible because theses files were created by the script and "owned" by apache (i.e. the server i.e. "48").

    I event tried to delete the folder via Appearance -> Themes -> Delete with no effort.

    So please tell me a way to get rid ot these files!

    Thank you.

    I found this page on how to delete files controlled by Apache, maybe it will help? http://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/926/Managing+files+owned+by+the+%27apache%27+user#dv

    Hey thanks for your answer!
    I didn't get it running but you pointed me at the right direction:
    PHP file manager!

    I found this one which worked for me: http://phpfm.sourceforge.net/

    Since I don't know wether the tool will work when you rename it be sure to create a backup of your index.php (or simple rename it like index.php.bak) because the tool's script file is also named index.php.
