|Keep 10 latest files in folder|
| 12:28 pm on Nov 28, 2012 (gmt 0)|
I've got a folder called Photos, i want a php script to keep only the 10 latest files and delete everything else.
Any ideas how I can achieve this?

Crawl the directory and use filemtime() to check the last modification time on each file. The function returns a UNIX timestamp, which you can easily sort.

If you're on Linux, something like
the -t flag in ls orders them by file modification time, if by that you mean 'latest' rather than file creation time.
head -10 is saying take the top 10 off the list.
