I have installed Wordpress using Softaculons.

How do I uninstall it, or remove it.  Can I just delete it or what?

Good Day,

To remove or uninstall a program from Softaculous, please follow the steps below:

  • Log into cPanel
  • Click on the softaculous icon in the software section
  • Then click on the installations at the top with a box icon
  • Next to the program you want to uninstall, click X-mark remove icon
  • Remove everything unless you intend to keep data from the installation.  Leave all boxes checked for Remove directoryRemove 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
