Softaculous: How to Remove Scripts Tutorial

Learn how to remove scripts with the Softaculous tool in cPanel

This tutorial explains how to remove an installation of a script from Softaculous. We will delete a WordPress application but the instructions are valid for any software which has been installed via the auto installer. To access the installer go to your cPanel and click on the Softaculous icon.

From the top right menu choose the All Installations button which looks like a wooden box.

On the page that opens you will see all applications that you have previously installed on your account. To delete any of the apps click the red Remove button.

When you click the red Remove button you will be redirected to a new page. You can choose to delete the whole application or only the files/database that are used by it. By default the Softaculous software will delete the files, database and database user. If you want to keep any of them uncheck the boxes. Then, scroll down to the end of the page and click the Remove Installation button.

A popup will appear asking you to confirm the removal of the installation. Confirm the operation by clicking the OK button.

In a few seconds the removal of the application will complete and you will see a confirmation page.
