    I made a FTP user with a root directory that was one level to high.
    The folder "share" and "sensorpi" are unwanted:
    Any idea to remove it? I am root and I can't delete it. I read something about an e tag on a directory but I don't know how to remove that tag.

    remove the immutable-flag from /var/www/vincentcox.com, remove the unwanted folders and set the immutable-flag again

    Thanks! That did the trick!
    I had to use the full link "/var/www/clients/client1/web1" instead of "/var/www/vincentcox.com" because that last one is symbolic.
    This thread can be closed! :)
