I think this may be a Security problem. Please check it out you have proper permission in completed sub folder.Go to the physical location and then check that appropriate user having modify permission with that folder.
Ask your host if they can set a cron to chown your subdir so you get the proper ownership back. There is also something called phpsuexec that is supposed to keep the permissions of the user when uploaded via php script.
Why do they call them fingers? I never seen them fing. Oh, there they go.
"the files/folders in your 'completed' subfolder was owned by 'nobody' user, we have changed permissions, please try now."
Thats fine. Except any new files that are uploaded I cannot delete!
There is a Form where someone enters their enquiry. They can browse to their file and then upload. It is written in PHP. The file gets uploaded.
Anyone know how I can get things set so that the file becomes deletable when using a script? I presume it is a php code thing.
You should have mentionned earlier that the files were getting uploaded through PHP, not FTP.
When you upload files through FTP they are created with the logged in user for owner, his group as group, and the mask (set by the server) for permissions. Exactly the same happens with PHP uploaded files, exept that you don't actually log in, so the files is created by PHP directly. It would appear that at your site PHP runs as 'nobody'. Since only the owner of a file can delete it (and you can't log in as nobody obviously) you can't do that.
The solution: since PHP created them, it can delete them.
