Uninstalling MetaMod

Uninstalling MetaMod

Can someone please tell me how to uninstall MetaMod for Joomla 1.5.22, so version mod_metamod-2-8c.

I've looked all over the site, and used search.

Thanks

Re: Uninstalling MetaMod

Hi awengraf,

metamod 2.8c, if installed only as the module (not MetaMod Pro) can be uninstalled like any other 3rd-party module on your site:

- go the the Extensions->Install/Uninstall menu
- click on the "modules" sub-menu
- find "mod_metamod" in the list
- click in the checkbox next to it
- click on "uninstall" at the top right of the window.

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Uninstalling MetaMod

What if it's not in the list?

I have no idea why it's not there.

Is there a way to just remove the files and SQL entries?

Re: Uninstalling MetaMod

If it's not in the list, but if some files are still on the web server, then something went wrong in Joomla when you tried to do the uninstall.

MetaMod is a completely standard module in terms of installation/uninstallation. It does not create any additional database tables etc.

The places where you should delete files are:

/modules/mod_metamod/*
/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_metamod.ini

If you have any MetaMod modules showing up in the module manager, then you should be able to delete those from within the module manager. If not, you can delete their entries from within the #__modules database table.


Hope that helps,
Stephen
