File In Public HTML I need to remove but cant.
I cleaned out the full wordpress installation. Changed passwords etc. But the hack came back.
Ive notice a file in my public html folder that I dont think should be there.
Its called Tmp and its full of stuff I know nothing about and I cant see why ist there or how it got there. When I try to remove that folder or any of its contents via ftp I get the message Permission denied.
Can someone advise on how I can get this off my account. Im not familiar with root acess but i know this folder is the likely cause of my hacking.
start fresh with a new Linode
In the meantime, Can you pleased advise on how to get rid of that Folder I mentioned above ? Im absolutely certain its the cause of the problem.
Use the command rm -rf /file/location
Make sure to use correct location or it will remove all your data from the server so don't try this if you don't have commandline skills.
Can you please advise on what to do next. The linode hosts 4 domains
The offending file is in Holderness-fishing.co-uk
How can I get rid of it using ssh please.
