    hello,
    First, instead of view 6 I have another view similar but the buttons name are : “update” – “cancel” – “delete application ” – “delete application and files”. I tryed to click on “delete application”. But I juste want to delete the virtual folder (not the application).

    I recieved this message:
    Are you sure you want to delete the Virtual Directory and files?
    This operation also deletes the application folder and its content…..

    I can not say “ok”. This will delete only the virtual dir ? If not, what will delete with and how to do to delete only the virtual dir ?

    Regards

    • First, make a backup of your application. It is important that you do this.

      Next, What you should do is remove the ‘path’ of the virtual directory, hit update. Then check is the path was properly removed and then remove the virtual directory.

      Let me know if that works for you.

      Regards,
