When i delete a product from magento are the images automatically deleted from the server too or do they remain there until they are manually removed?

If the images remain then what is the best way of removing them from the server ie what is the best way of removing images which are not attached to a product?

Morning David,

When you delete a product the images are left behind.

There is this extension that will clean them out though http://www.magentocommerce.com…..clean.html

Im using magento 1.8.1, however this extension is only supported up to 1.7. Might it still work on version 1.8.1?

Should i only install extensions which are updated to support the version of magento im using, or do people sometimes use older extensions?

Hi David,

Ideally we would like to be seeing that 1.8.1.0 is being supported there, so it’s worth shooting the developer an email to see if they can bring it up to date.

Most extensions work between versions, but it’s always a good idea to test on a clone of your site first to make sure that it works as expected.

We don’t have a video tutorial on creating a clone just yet, however if you’re using installatron in cpanel, it’s the 3rd button across and when you hover on it it’s called clone.
