Manually uninstall RSComments!

If for some reason the automatic uninstallation fails, follow these steps to manually remove RSComments! from your Joomla!:
  1. Locate your Joomla! /administrator/components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rscomments.
  2. Locate your Joomla! /components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rscomments.
  3. Connect to your MySQL database and remove all of the _rscomments tables. For example, if your Joomla! database prefix is "jos", remove all tables that start with jos_rscomments.
  4. For instance, use this SQL script:
     
      DROP TABLE `jos_rscomments_comments`, `jos_rscomments_config`, `jos_rscomments_groups`, `jos_rscomments_subscriptions`,
      `jos_rscomments_votes`
     
  5. For Joomla! 3.x: Browse the _extensions, _assets and _menus tables and erase all com_rscomments entries. For instance, use this SQL queries:
  6.  
      DELETE FROM `jos_extensions` WHERE `element`='com_rscomments'
      DELETE FROM `jos_menus` WHERE `link` LIKE '%com_rscomments%'
      DELETE FROM `jos_assets` WHERE `name` LIKE '%com_rscomments%'
