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.
