Manually Uninstalling RSContact!

If uninstalling RSContact! using Joomla!'s default Extension Manager feature fails for some reason, you still have the option to manually uninstall the module:


Manually uninstalling RSContact! is a little bit more complicated than using Joomla!'s Extension Manager, there are some files and a database entry that you need to delete yourself:


Files


All of RSContact!'s files are stored in the following folder:


/modules/mod_rscontact


Please remove this folder completely.


Database


All of the module's configuration information is stored in the following database table:


dbprefix_modules


Access this table using a database manager (like phpMyAdmin, for example) and delete the entries that have mod_rscontact as a set value in the module column (there may be multiple entries, depending on whether you have created more instances of the module or not, trashed instances included).


Some information is also stored in the following table:


dbprefix_extensions


Access this table using a database manager (like phpMyAdmin, for example) and delete the entry that has mod_rscontact as a set value in the name column.


Tip: You can also use the following queries to delete the module's entries in the dbprefix_modules and dbprefix_extensions tables:


DELETE FROM `dbprefix_modules` WHERE `module`='mod_rscontact'

DELETE FROM `dbprefix_extensions` WHERE `name`='mod_rscontact'
