On my servers, one of the scripts that I have been using keeps creating the blank files at root and I haven't been noticed for more than over 6 months and now total files are created more than 500,000 files.
I cannot access that directory through control panel because there were too many files and I can only access with ftp. Even with ftp, ftp truncated the files by 8000 each. So I have to keep deleting 8000 each.
I tried to ask my host to delete it for me but they says they can't since it's the liability issues.
So what I want to know is how can i delete all of those 500,000 files through ftp? Since it's shared hosting, I don't have SSH access either. Hosting provider says I can request the SSH access but need to verify it and their office closed until next week. So I am stuck with ftp for now.
So please kindly let me know how can i delete massive files via ftp ?
And incase, if i can get the ssh access, please kindly let me know how can i delete the files via ssh with efficient ways ?
Filename are like this
