Is it possible to have PHP delete a hard copy of an image from a folder in the tree, when deleting the corrosponding information from the MySQL database.

More or less what I am trying to figure out is...

I have a table with three fields, ID, Name and filename, when a user first uploads an image it uploads to a folder in my server, then simply inserts the file name into the database which I call later using
<img src='uploadz/$photoname'> Now if the user deletes the account or just one picture, can I have PHP also delete the hard copy in the folder when it takes the link from the database.

Hmmm...

Probably an easy task but I have searched the world over with no solution

Thanks,

Rob
