Delete file not working

I'm attempting to delete a file before I delete the associated record. The file is in a folder outside of the site root. The file is not being deleted.

<?php
$WA_DeleteFileResult1 = false;
if("" == ""){
$WA_DeleteFileResult1 = WA_FileAssist_DeleteFile("/home/cvoffers/_form", "".$row_rsForm['formFile'] ."");
}
?>
<?php
// WA Application Builder Delete
if ("" == "") // Trigger
{
$WA_connection = $connData;
$WA_table = "listingForm";
$WA_redirectURL = "cp.php";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $WA_redirectURL = $WA_redirectURL?rel2abs($WA_redirectURL,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;
$WA_fieldNamesStr = "formID";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "none,none,NULL";
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".$_GET['formID'] ."";
$WA_comparisonStr = "=";
$WA_fieldNames = explode("|", $WA_fieldNamesStr);
$WA_fieldValues = explode($WA_AB_Split, $WA_fieldValuesStr);
$WA_columns = explode("|", $WA_columnTypesStr);
$WA_comparisions = explode("|", $WA_comparisonStr);
$WA_connectionDB = $database_connData;
mysql_select_db($WA_connectionDB, $WA_connection);
if (!session_id()) session_start();
$deleteParamsObj = WA_AB_generateWhereClause($WA_fieldNames, $WA_columns, $WA_fieldValues, $WA_comparisions);
$WA_Sql = "DELETE FROM `" . $WA_table . "` WHERE " . $deleteParamsObj->sqlWhereClause;
$MM_editCmd = mysql_query($WA_Sql, $WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
if ($WA_redirectURL != "") {
if ($WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
$WA_redirectURL .= ((strpos($WA_redirectURL, '?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
}
header("Location: ".$WA_redirectURL);
}
}?>

Two things:

1) make sure the recordset is above this code
2) add a slash to the end of the folder name like:
WA_FileAssist_DeleteFile("/home/cvoffers/_form/", "".$row_rsForm['formFile'] ."");

I ensured the recordset is above the code and added the slash after the folder. Still no luck. See code in private section.

Try adding this after the recordset and before the delete:

php:
die("/home/cvoffers/_form/"."".$row_rsForm['formFile'] ."");



See if it looks like the correct path... that will tell you if the issue is in the delete server behavior or the filtering of the recordset above it.

Like this? This gives me a syntax error in Dreamweaver.

See file structure below...

Sorry I had a comma in place of a period in the code sample... you put it in the right spot, should be:


<?php die("/home/cvoffers/_form/" . "".$row_rsForm['formFile'] ."");?>

This post has been deleted.

I have a feeling that this is due to the fact that the file I'm wanting to delete is outside the site root...
