    Is it possible to set up some sort of script that will upload some files to a ftp site at a particular time and delete these files once they have been uploaded?

    Am I asking too much? Could someone help me with this?

    You want to upload files, then have them deleted? Why? That seems pointless to move files and just delete them.

    Getting things to happen at a certain are easily done using cron. Easy to find tutorial via Google.

    I use rsync to do some file uploading. It may be worth looking into.

    I was very vague on what I was trying to accomplish.

    I don't want the files that were just uploaded to be deleted, but the location from where they were uploaded.

    I have attempted this but it would not delete the files from the "hot" upload folder and it also stopped working after a short amount of time.
