So I finally got my Ubuntu box up and running, ran the LAMP install, and successfully loaded up the apache2 webserver, and php5. The one thing I didn't want is for Ubuntu during the installation to take one whole 1TB drive that contained a ton of stuff, but it was a backup drive so no biggie. But now I was transferring pics to the /var/www location and it copied a directory that contains spaces. Terminal seems to hang when I use the rm command, any ideas would be appreciated, thanks guys.
Your terminal hangs, that's very odd. In the terminal I'm usually able to remove spaces by escaping the space character with a backslash:
If that doesn't work, have you tried enclosing it in single or double quotes:
Another idea would be to install a terminal file manager such as Midnight Commander and try to remove the file that way. Good luck!
