Cannot delete files from server
|Reported by:||Hans Teijgeler||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||XP SP2 + SP3|
I was uploading some JPG files. Then the following two files appeared at the server side:
(including that starting dot).
I tried to delete them, with no success:
Command: DELE .pureftpd-upload.48d65748.15.1dcb.57b4d1fb
Response: 550 Prohibited file name: .pureftpd-upload.48d65748.15.1dcb.57b4d1fb
Neither can I rename them, and neither can I delete the directory in which they are stored.
What can I do?

Those are temporary files created by your server software and disappear on their own.
If they do not, you need to contact the server administrator, only he can remove the stale files.
This is not a bug per-se at all.
The FTP server you are using is configured to reject the file names you encountered. In order to remove the files, you have to either re-configure the FTP server, ask an administrator or the support staff for assistance, or SSH (or other remote access) to the server and delete the file there.
