Uninstall RO CSVI

When you uninstall RO CSVI via the Extension Manager only the files are removed but the database tables remain. The reason behind this is, if you want to update RO CSVI that you don't lose all your settings.

There may be circumstances where you need to delete the database tables as well. In that case there are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Manually remove all the tables in your database that start with csvi_
  2. Use the built-in option in RO CSVI to remove the tables.

Uninstall RO CSVI tables using Maintenance

The built-in option to remove the RO CSVI tables can be found in the Maintenance area.

Uninstall RO CSVI

  1. Go to Components -> RO CSVI
  2. Click on Maintenance
  3. In the first dropdown select RO CSVI
  4. In the second dropdown choose Remove CSVI tables
  5. Click on Continue
  6. All CSVI tables will now be removed and RO CSVI can be uninstalled via the Extension Manager

After RO CSVI has been uninstalled via the Extension Manager you will have a clean system and ready to install a fresh installation of RO CSVI.

Once the uninstallation is complete you can do an extra check to make sure the following folders are all removed:

  • administrator/components/com_csvi
  • components/com_csvi
  • api/components/com_csvi
  • plugins/csviaddon
  • plugins/csviext
  • plugins/csvirules
