".pure-ftpd", what is that?

what the hell is this? everytime i re-install or just install somthing, evertime the server doesn't connect, it gives me a file starting with this name, in the folder that it stoped connecting.... ".pure-ftpd" im sitting there trying to delete the damn thing, and it just says "prohibited name", how the hell am i supposed to delete crap like that? please answer

Seems to be a PureFTPd per-directory configuration file, just like ".htaccess" for Apache. Usually, the server should be configured so that you cannot see the file. And of course the server won't let you delete it if it's a configuration file. Refer to the PureFTPd community for further help, this issue is not related to SmartFTP.
