How Do I Turn Off, Uninstall, Or Remove A Module?
« on: April 22, 2008, 05:34:30 PM »
Turning Off, Uninstalling and Removing a module are entirely different things. If you intend to remove a module, it is recommended that you do so in the following order: "turn off", "uninstall", then "remove".

Turning a module off will simply remove it's features from use. However it will not remove it's installed code to your files or it's package from your site. This is a tool that is excellent for maintenance or updating the module. To turn a module off, go to: "Admin > Tinyportal > Modules > SELECT THE MODULE YOU WISH TO TURN OFF".

Uninstalling a module will remove any of the module features and code from your site's file. However, it's package will remain in case you decide to install again. To uninstall a module off, go to: "Admin > Tinyportal > Modules > SELECT THE MODULE YOU WISH TO UNINSTALL".

Removing a module will remove it's package from your site. It will no longer be available for reinstall, unless you re-upload your module package. To remove a module off, go to: "Admin > Tinyportal > Modules > SELECT THE MODULE YOU WISH TO REMOVE".
