Manually uninstalling RSSocial!

Uninstalling RSSocial! can be done in 2 manners: either manually, or using Joomla!'s default Extension Manager feature. In this article we will be presenting the first method:


Manually uninstalling RSSocial! 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 RSSocial!'s files are stored in the following folder:


/modules/mod_rssocial


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 entry that has mod_rssocial as a set value in the module column.


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_rssocial 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_rssocial'

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