How do you mean "to mess up"? Are you using managed server or unmanaged? Assuming managed one, just: rm -rf /* and reboot it, the server will not come back, then contact them about the issue. Note, do this on server that you don't have any services in it, otherwise you will delete everything...

Thanks no the server itself is not managed For management I wanted to sign up with a company . If I remove / the server management company can't help I will need to contact the server provider

You need to check with the management company about what exactly or which job are they used to manage, install apache or any other software and delete their dirs manually and try to restart the service which it will not start and then contact the company about it.

Thanks I think it would be easy for them to know that a folder does not exist, Any other tricks?

As a managed company i assume they have tech admins that would know how to fix most if not all in your server, the question is here with is very important how quick will they take action on your issues.

well I used a company ( I prefer not to mention to disparage them) they did the job but wasted a lot of time and asked so many questions and mostly responded to tickets to buy time :)
