To delete a file the user running the web server needs to be able to write
to the directory containing the file.  Either the directory should be owned
by the user nobody and writable by its owner, or in the group nobody and
writable by group, or (the most dangerous choice) writable by any user.  To
change the ownership, you need to be able to log in as the user root.
