Solved it by myself. :)

unlink($file); needs to be *exact* address to the file to be unlinked like

Just in case if someone else meets this problem!

Subject: [PHP] Removing files from a directory

I'm trying to remove files from a directory. I have this code to do it:

This code is in a included file located at '/map/'. File including this code
is located at '/'. Files to be removed are located at '/map/'.

$Handle = opendir('map/');
 while ($file = readdir($Handle)) {
  if (substr($file, 0, 3) == "md_") {
   $split = explode("_", $file);
   if ((time() - $split[1]) > 300) {

What this does is return a Internal Server Error! If add do
unlink("map/".$file); it returns file not found. What to do? What is wrong?
