ok, as stated, I dont know unix.

I did a google search and think I am at least on the right path.

Only thing is, how I am seeing it I should be able to do this with 2 commands.

Can someone PM me and I can show you what I got so far, maybe give me a step in the right direction?

Thanks

Why not try both and find which one works?


Debugging is what programmers do to beta software to make it take up more room on your hard drive if it is running too efficiently.

I put in the 2 commands and also a variation of having "" or {} around the file name, but I assume it needs 3 commands not just 2

Learn basic Unix commands. They're not hard and, for this challenge, it's the simple ones. Yes, you can do it with 2 lines of commands... Hell, you can do it with 1. Approach it from the standpoint that you have to take 3 separate actions, each on its own command, then you'll figure it out. This one takes a bit of fiddling to get it to work.

Why not read before responding?

Ok, ill look into it some more tonight when I get home, but I basically [doing commands], I guess I am assuming I am in the root of where the text file is, ill look into possible directory navigation and some more google research.

Thanks

Obviously... you're way offtrack. You can PM me with specific questions, but I will not give you general advice on this challenge (nor any other). Otherwise, concentrate on Unix commands as the challenge says; PHP functions have no bearing on the solution.

Yeah, Zephyr is right, this challenge has nothing to do with PHP commands. The commands needed are very easy and basic.

Here's a website which might be able to help you.
http://mally.stan. . .-unix.html

If you have a go at it after reading through that page and then if you still can't get it you can PM me.

Good luck.

I solved this challenge before...
But what I don't understand is that why do I need to change the permission of the file in order to delete it?!
What I know is that if I can change the permission then I can also delete!

This probably should've been changing ownership, not changing permission. I think Windows permissions work in a way that you actually have to have write (or one of the advanced permissions derived from Write) access to delete a file.

man, still the same thing!
if you can change ownership then you can delete!
what's the purpose of changing ownership!
about windowns, it's a different story, if you have a system file, you cannot delete it unless you change its attribute to a non system file by the command:
attrib -s FILENAME

If you are given access to those commands through a sudoers file, then it's not the same thing. You'd be changing ownership as a root account to your normal account, then deleting it as your normal account (which you would not be able to do normally if you did not own it). Instead of finding reasons for why something seems stupid, try to find reasons for why it can happen.


about windowns, it's a different story, if you have a system file, you cannot delete it unless you change its attribute to a non system file by the command:
attrib -s FILENAME

I was talking about file/folder permissions on a domain. It's very rare that you'd change permissions on a workstation.
