Ok I want to delete my old forum from my webspace. Does anyone know where or how I can write a bit of ASP to delete the directory?

The DeleteFolder method deletes one or more specified folders.

Note: An error will occur if you try to delete a folder that does not exist.


Parameter Description
foldername Required. The name of the folder or folders to delete (Wildcards are allowed)
force Optional. A Boolean value that indicates whether read-only folders will be deleted. True indicates that read-only folders will be deleted, False indicates that they will not be deleted. Default is False

Code: [ Select ]
dim fs
set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
if fs.FolderExists("c:\temp") then
end if
set fs=nothing
  1. Example
  2. <%
  3. dim fs
  4. set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  5. if fs.FolderExists("c:\temp") then
  6.  fs.DeleteFolder("c:\temp")
  7. end if
  8. set fs=nothing
  9. %>
