    So. Is there a glaring issue that I cannot edit the FTP folder? I can look at it all I want to, but when it comes to deleting and editting anything in the folder it hates me.

    It also won't let me add to it. Oh dear.

    first off, what FTP folder? secondly, it sounds like a simple permissions thing--you have read-only access. In the Finder, select the folder, File->Get Info, and at the bottom, you'll see permissions stuff....

    uhh, what ftp folder? Are you using an FTP service within OSX, or are you connecting to an FTP service that you can't change.

    the details are overwhelming.

    For whatever superhomogay reason, they made it so Finder's FTP functionality is nearly worthless. It's read-only, regardless of what permissions you are actually supposed to have (I ran into this same situation not long ago with the several ftps I have).

    So you pretty much have to just use a different FTP client. I usually just use the FireFTP extension in Firefox.
