Delete orphaned files and images

Brian, as always you are a big help.
I did manage to follow your instructions and get my virtual host setup for this project. Now I can just type in http://websitename and it comes up. Can't wait to get all of my sites converted over after I install the final version of MAMP Pro.

However, my DFP script still isn't deleting the image files. I will go over all the lines of code again and look for any possible reason. But I can't understand why it worked before, and still works on my remotely hosted site but will not work on my local anymore.

I wondered if it has to do with Permissions maybe? MAMP Pro has the permissions settings and I will read up on changing them. I tried to change them, but it ignored my attempt. So there's something that I overlooked. I went into Permissions, checked "change" and then "Set" after I changed it but it ignores the changes. Right now the owner is set to rwx for the Directory and rw- for the file. Group is --- for the Directory and r-- for the file. Others is - - for the Directory and r - for the file. I'm not sure why the last two include blanks for w. What should these be set to?
