Remove Modules in Open Web Analytics

Removing unneeded features is an important but often neglected step in web design. Open Web Analytics includes a Hello World module as a template for users wishing to develop custom modules. For users uninterested in developemnt, here’s how to remove modules in Open Web Analytics.

Note: Below we’ll remove the pre-installed Hello World module. If you’re sure you won’t need the other modules, for GDPR compliance in example, you can remove the others.
