Ok guys i added delete file behaviors on both update.php and detail.php (carefull it overwrites HelperPHP.php again so keep backup of either the 2 lines code or a file and just rename it on your server).

What was worrying me after checking the delete function is that i don't see anywhere checking the DefaultFileName attribute again so not to delete it. Well code doesn't check about it but its probably not needed on linux servers, on windows u need to hack the code to check about the name.

On linux servers you get an owner on the uploaded files of 99. while if u upload from ftp any file you will get owner of the credentials you used to login to ftp.

DELETE function can not delete the no_image.jpg on my webserver cause it can't delete a file from my user. Can only delete file from user 99. In a windows server environment i suppose u need to hack the above function in HelperPHP.php file

This is the original code in HelperPHP.php

function WA_FileAssist_DeleteFile($folderPath, $filePath){

$folderPath = rootRelativeToFullFileURL($folderPath);
$result = FALSE;
$separator = WA_DFP_GetFileSeparator();
$path = $folderPath.$separator.$filePath;
$fullPath = realpath($path);
if(file_exists($path) && is_writable($fullPath)){
$result = TRUE;
return $result;

You should probably change the IF arguement -- if(file_exists($path) && is_writable($fullPath)) -- to :

if(file_exists($path) && is_writable($fullPath) && ($filePath!='no_image.jpg'))

Ofc this is an example. In reality you need to pass to the DELETE function the DefaultFileName value as a parameter and use a variable instead of the hard-coded no_image.jpg. This means that DELETE function needs to change a bit and a parameter specific for it should be adde to code cause e.g. details.php page doesnt have any defaultfilename parameter so the delete function could use.

It is not a tough fix but i don't need it currently as im using a linux webserver. You could also handcode it as i showed u if ur working with images. You dont need loop here, just give the name of the DefaultFileName for no image and IF should check if that is the filename. If it is, it wont bother deleting the file at all.
