Uninstalling packages

Installed packages can be uninstalled. For example, let's say that you have chosen the "Shop" standard site package in the setup wizard while installing eZ Publish and then you decided to use only multi-price products, not simple price ones. In this case, you can safely uninstall one of the dependent packages which is called "Products" (this content object package contains simple price products needed for the "Shop" site). The following instructions reveal how this can be done.

  1. Go to "Setup - Packages" in your administration interface, select the "ez_systems" repository from the drop-down list and click the "Change repository" button. Find the installed package that you wish to uninstall and click on its name. The system will display the package summary as shown in the following screenshot.

    Click the "Uninstall" button.

  2. The system will display a list of items that will be removed (look at the next screenshot).

     Click the "Uninstall package" button to continue or use "Skip installation" to abort the operation. If one of the listed content classes can not be removed, it will be skipped automatically. For example, the "Folder" content class will not be removed if it is used by one of the top level nodes.

  3.  If some of the items being removed have been modified after the package installation, the system will ask for confirmation before removing them.
     You can choose to keep or remove these items. Make your choice and click the "Continue" button.
  4. The system will display a summary. Please note that uninstalled packages will still be available under the system repository (they will be marked as "Imported") and can be installed later if needed.
