How to remove the orignal file in carrierwave

HI All,

I am using the carrier wave gem for file uploading, and I am not able to delete the original file after uploading. I tried the below code but it didn’t work, any help would be really appreciated.

  • after :store, :unlink_original
    def unlink_original(file)
    File.delete(store_dir+’/’+@original_file) #path of the original file
    end*

regards,

How about File.unlink instead of File.delete

HI All,

I am using the carrier wave gem for file uploading, and I am not able to
delete the original file after uploading. I tried the below code but it
didn't work, any help would be really appreciated.

after :store, :unlink_original

  def unlink_original(file)
    File.delete(store_dir+'/'+@original_file) #path of the original file
  end

Have you confirmed that unlink_original is being called and that the
correct file name is being built and passed to delete? If you have
not already done so then I suggest logging a message showing the value
os
store_dir+'/'+@original_file and makes sure that it appears ok.
Alternatively break in with the debugger to make sure it is ok.
