Thanks. That seems to get me closer but no I am getting an unlink error. I know for certain that the permissions on the folder are correct so that leads me to believe that I am still pointing somehow to the wrong folder.
How can I see where the code is pointing?
ie: I want to do something like this:
<?php echo "../apps/".$row_deleterecord['lname'] ."", "".$row_deleterecord['resume'] ."";?>
although that does not work, I am hoping you get the idea.
