I am attempting to delete a backup directory on MediaTemple's (dv) via SSH. The directory is "old" and contains the entire server contents from OS level that (mt) backed up there after my server was hacked. I want to remove it in case there's any malware etc there that could compromise the server again. It is not permitting me though:
cannot remove `old/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions': Operation not permitted
I tried rebooting the server and retrying the delete but still same.
