Softaculous helps make installing programs very easy, but it also makes uninstallng programs simple too. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to remove programs that you previously installed using Softaculous.

Uninstalling programs with Softaculous:

  1. Log into your cPanel
  2. Under the Software/Services heading, click the Softaculous icon
  3. In the top menu, click the Application Installs button. (Depending on the installation, some VPS and Dedicated servers will have a button named All Installations instead)
  4. Next to the program you want to uninstall, click icon_uninstall remove icon
  5. Unless you have a specific reason to not remove everything, you can leave all boxes checked for remove directory, remove database, and remove database user.

    Click the Remove Installation button to uninstall this program. You will then receive a pop up stating:

    These actions are irreversible!
    Are you sure you want to remove this installation ?

    Click OK to complete the removal of the software. When the uninstallation was successful, you will see the following message:

    The installation was removed successfully

"Step 3.In the top menu, click the Script Installs button"

Actually there isn't a button that says Script Installs. However, if you click "Application Installs" you will be able to continue with the instructions.
