I'm trying to write a simple code that will delete the whole row of expired session data I store on my database.

<?php
include("connect.php");

$now = time();
$sql = "DELETE from active WHERE expire >= $now";
$result = mysql_query($sql,$conn) or die(mysql_error("Unable to delete expired"));

?>

I thought that was it until I came to test it - can anyone tweek the code or point me in the right direction?

think it should be expire <= $now

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Tried both < and > and changed the date on the database to days/months ago. Everytime I run it I get the message "unable to delete expired" - so I'm guessing I'm doing something else wrong.

Anyone know what?
