Manually uninstall RSFirewall!

If for some reason the automatic uninstallation fails, follow these steps to manually remove RSFirewall! from your Joomla installation.

  1. Locate your Joomla!/components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rsfirewall.
  2. Locate your Joomla!/administrator/components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rsfirewall.
  3. Delete the /administrator/modules/mod_rsfirewall/ folder.
  4. Delete the /plugins/system/rsfirewall/ folder.
  5. Connect to your MySQL database and remove all of the _rsfirewall tables. For example, if your Joomla! database prefix is "jos", remove all tables that start with jos_rsfirewall.
  6. For instance, use this SQL script:
      DROP TABLE `jos_rsfirewall_configuration`, `jos_rsfirewall_exceptions`,`jos_rsfirewall_feeds`, `jos_rsfirewall_hashes`,
     `jos_rsfirewall_ignored`, `jos_rsfirewall_lists`, `jos_rsfirewall_logs`, `jos_rsfirewall_offenders`,`jos_rsfirewall_signatures`,
  7. For Joomla! 3.x: Browse the _extensions, _assets and _menus tables and erase all com_rsfirewall entries. For instance, use these SQL queries:
  8.   DELETE FROM `jos_extensions` WHERE `element`='com_rsfirewall'
      DELETE FROM `jos_menu` WHERE `link` LIKE '%com_rsfirewall%'
      DELETE FROM `jos_assets` WHERE `name` LIKE '%com_rsfirewall%'
