Hi guys, im running a bit of code that is to be designed to delete entrys from a MYSQL database as well as the file which is stored in a folder known as videos, well I got the code deleting the entry in the database but it is not delete the file in the folder, any ideas on how I go about doing this? Heres the code im using


if (isset($_GET['ID'])) {
$vidID = $_GET['ID'];
} else {
$vidID = NULL;

$query = "DELETE FROM videos WHERE ID = ('$vidID')";

$result = mysql_query($query);

echo "The video has been deleted.";


Any help would be great

you could use unlink to delete the files.

Good Luck,
