Delete directories recursive on Hetzner Storage Box

Among other external solutions, I store some data on Storage Boxes from Hetzner. The Storage Box allows you to have sub-accounts, so for every server and system storing data there, I use a separate account. For each sub-account, one can select a subdirectory where the data is stored, and the sub-account then can only see this data. The Admin account can see all data, and see all directories.

The usual way I access the Storage Box from other systems is by using sftp protocol from ssh (don't confuse this with the "other" sftp). That's all good, until I remove a sub-account and want to delete the subdirectory with the data. The server doesn't know "rm -r" for recursive deletion, which means I have to traverse into every directory, delete all files, then delete the empty directories. And the encrypted backup I'm using is creating plenty of subdirectories.

Or I find a better tool.

Start multiple ssh sessions with KDE konsole

I have shell accounts on different servers. Sometimes - especially if new Debian/Ubuntu/Redhat/Fedora updates are available - i have to open a ssh session to each server. That takes time and too much keyboard clicks and being a lazy admin i thought this job can be scripted.

Last year i switched from my long-time favourite windowmanager fvwm2 to KDE. Given the fact that most of my work is still done using a terminal i decided to give "konsole" a chance and found that this tool has some nice advantages compared to the simple xterm which i used before. One lovely feature is the tabbing functionality, another one the integrated scripting which can be used with "dcop" (Desktop Communication Protocol).
