I cannot delete the /admin/install folder

It happens sometimes because there is an .htaccess file in /admin/install/data/rewrite_check/ folder and it may be invisible by ftp. 

You can go to that folder by FTP and run following command:

dele .htaccess

After that you can delete the install folder.

Another way to resolve this is to change filter parameter in FTP connection properties, so you would be able to see hidden files (e.g. .htaccess files) and delete them.

You should set the following filter:


In CuteFTP you can do that with the following steps:

  1. Open properties for the FTP connection.
  2. Click on the "Actions" tab.
  3. Click on the "Filter..." button.
  4. Set the "Enable server side filtering (server applies filters)" checkbox.
  5. Input "-aL" into the "Remote filter" field.
  6. Click OK in both windows.
After this you will be able to see all hidden files and delete them.
