Are you sure you actually have file '15.jpg' in the photo directory (/home/fsuk/public_html/bla/photo/15.jpg)? This could be causing the error.

if (file_exists('photo/'.$_SESSION['photo'])) {
   unlink('photo/'.$_SESSION['photo']) or die("Unlink problem!");
  echo "File removed successfully.";
} else {
  echo "Someone beat me to it.  The file does not exist.";

This might help. Also you can't unlink a file on a remote server. You must use relative paths, so no unlink('http://myserver.com/filename').

Check Appendix M on the [a href=\"http://www.php.net\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net[/a] site for more information.

Let us know if you have any further problems.


I can't stop you from doing something silly, but at least I can help you do it right.

You have "/photos" as the directory in one line and "/photo" in the other. Which directory are you're photos stored in? Resolve this and your problem may go away.
