After deletion from Web Presence Builder GUI files remain on disk

Applicable to:

  • Web Presence Builder for Linux

Symptoms

After removing the picture from site and publishing the site in Web Presence Builder the image will remain in %domain_dir%/httpdocs/attachments/Image/ even though it's not used anymore. The same thing happens with clients that use the "Blog" functionality and upload images. When they delete older blog posts the images remain in /attachments/ .

Cause

This behavior is by design. WPB firstly removes this image from its server (WPB directory) and on the second publish time it synchronizes httpdocs folder of domain.

Resolution

As a workaround press 'Publish' button again to delete unnecessary pictures from server.
