A project I'm working on at the moment requires me to delete files and folders on the server.
I'm testing it locally at the moment, and I'm running into a couple of problems.
Firstly, even though the subfolder and the files have their permissions set to 0777, I get the error message:
Secondly, and more worryingly, as I'm using a mac I have a hidden file .ds_store in every folder, which is created by mac os x, which also cannot be deleted, because of permission settings.Warning: unlink(/Users/mickyginger/Sites/galleries/Cradles/index.php) [function.unlink]: Permission denied in /Users/mickyginger/Sites/includes/helpers.inc.php on line 20
Can anyone shed some light on the best practice for the creation and deletion of files and folders with php.
