i have just setup a server with PHP and Perl on IIS and i cannot seem to delete files using PHP or Perl, i've used all the ways of unlinking the file but none of them seem to delete the file. I have read/write permission set on the files and the folder. The script i have deletes files successfully from a folder and it works on other servers but it doesnt work on mine. i am assuming i have setup something incorrectly, can anyone please advise me on what can be done.
If you have physical access to the server, you might want to try the following. 1. create a folder on the server with write access available to everyone 2. write a php script to create a file in the new folder 3. run the script 4. check the owner and or creator of the file. 5. make sure that user has read/write access to the folder you are having a problem with.
jezra quick question: what version of IIS are you running?
