I have a problem deleting a .pdf file from the server. I get the name of the file that I want to delete from my DB and the file does exist but unlink just isn't working.
This is my code:
Now get the strange thing. If I refresh the site multiple times then the file will be deleted. Sometimes on the 4. refresh or 5....
$oldFileName = "../folder/".$_POST['oldName'];
Thanks for all the help!

Are you determining whether or not the file was deleted based on whether the text 'Deleted' was printed or based on some external check?
Is file_exists returning false or is unlink returning false?
Do you have error reporting fully turned on?
Also your code allows an attacker to delete arbitrary files from your server.
