Uploaded Image can't delete

I have used the standard upload script for php to upload an image to a directory.  The script uploads ok, but I cant remove the file!  I have used my ftp client and the control panel from my host... I cant remove it?

This is the script I am using:

      $uploadDir = ROOT_PATH.'/img/'.$cat_dir['cat_dir'].'/'.$scat_dir['cat_sdir'];
      $uploadFile = $uploadDir . $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
      $fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
 
       if(!move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'], $uploadFile))
      {
            $msg = 'Product upload failed';
            include ROOT_PATH.'/admin/pages/add_product.php';
            exit();
      }
      @chmod($uploadFile,777);

move_uploaded_files only works if the files and directories being used are the same UID as the process that is running.  So if you want to move the files, you'll have to make sure that the web server created the destination directories using PHP instead of you creating them using your ftp or shell client.  

Another possibility it that your destination directory does not exist.   If your not running in safe mode, then the directory not existing is probably it.

turns out I can delete them by using unlink becouse it uses the same user that the file was created with.

remove the @ from the chmod() function to see what error it gives you, also depending on version of PHP, chmod requires the octal, so chmod($uploadFile,0777);
