unlink permissions on windows

1 New Member
Is there any PHP.INI config or windows permission (win 2003) that can prevent PHP to unlink files with the system path?

unlink works with relative path:
@unlink("temp\0 000058.txt")
but it is not workinng with the absolute path
@unlink("C:\htd ocs\temp\000005 8.txt")

the thing is I use unlink within a function called from different directories, so I use absolute path to make sure the path is correct. I've installed my application on several servers, and it's the first time I see this behaviour

Can someone detail the differences between these two? On Windows which is preferred? Also, is it true that win32api.DeleteFile() can remove the 'special' files located in the 'special' folders only accessible by the shell object such as Temporary Internet Files, etc. Thanks!

Hi there, I'd greatly appreciate any insights into the following problem: I've got PHP running fine on IIS (OS: Server 2003, SP1; IIS: 6.0; PHP: 4.3.11). In PHP, the user uploads a file, which is then processed and the contents are inserted into a new file, created in PHP, onto the server.
