This guide will help you to remove Softaculous from your WHM/CPanel Server. Please, take a note that it will not remove your existing software scripts installations but will only remove the Softaculous plugin for CPanel/WHM. You won’t be able to make any auto-installations of the scripts and it will remove it from your customers CPanel control panels.

Please follow the below steps to complete the uninstall process.

  1. Login to your server as root through ssh
  2. Run the following commands:
    #/usr/local/cpanel/bin/unregister_cpanelplugin /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous/softaculous.cpanelplugin
    # rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous
    # rm -rf /var/softaculous
    # rm -rf /etc/cron.d/softaculous
    # rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/addon_softaculous.cgi
    Do not include # sign in your commands.
  3. That should be it and Softaculous should be neatly uninstalled from your server now.
