svn_deleteDelete items from a working copy or repository


svn_delete(string $path, bool $force = false): bool

Deletes the file, directory or symbolic link at path from the working directory. The item will be deleted from the repository the next time you call svn_commit() on the working copy.



Path of item to delete.

Note: Relative paths will be resolved as if the current working directory was the one that contains the PHP binary. To use the calling script's working directory, use realpath() or dirname(__FILE__).


If true, the file will be deleted even if it has local modifications. Otherwise, local modifications will result in a failure. Default is false

Return Values

Returns true on success or false on failure.
