My 1st question is: Need help with putting a website on the internet from a iPage web host.? Hoping for any answer. Another question I got... I need to know how to uninstall the whole thing. I originally set up 1 osc, and it didnt work good, so then I set up another one. I want to uninstall the 1st one. Will this make the other one go down? How do I delete it, my ftp doesnt let me delete any folders that have anything in them...

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Comment #1

When you said, just delete the problem program itself. Did you mean the 1st one that didnt work?..

Comment #2

Yes...just don't delete the database unless the second install created a new one...

Comment #3

Im using WS FTP LE and I cant change the settings on deleting folders that have files in them. What should I do?..

Comment #4

Try chmod'ing them to 777 and see if you can delete them..

Comment #5

Try the chmod and if that doesn't work try.

SmartFTP.

I started using it after wsFTP didn't work very well for me...

Comment #6

Alternatively using wsFTP delete the files inside the folder and then delete the folder. Yuo can only dlete a folder when it is empty.

Robr..

Comment #7

If your provider uses some form of cpanel, you can go in and delete the whole lot, or even with an editor like dreamweaver. you can delete or edit whatever you want...

Comment #8

If you have ws_ftp Pro then you have no worries it is only the lighter versions that you may have a problem with, however there should be a setting to allow a directory to be deleted..

Comment #9

Yeah that is the problem with ws_ftp le. It only let's you upload and not much else. I have used both ws_ftp & smartftp and I prefer smartftp because I can delete, move, upload, download, etc. witht the free version..

Although if you use Homestead as your host you can't download a damn thing....I hope NO ONE uses them...

Comment #11

If you used the same database for both installs don't delete it. You can just delete the problem program itself. If your ftp program doesn't let you delete folders with files in them, check the preferences or options of ftp program. It is probably just a setting. If you need a good FTP client, download wsFTP Pro...
