Uninstall froxlor

1. Backup

Before you remove anything, make sure to back up the froxlor database in case you want to go back. By default, the database name is froxlor. If unsure of the details, you can open the froxlor/lib/ file to get all the necessary information.

mysqldump -u root -p froxlor > /tmp/backup_froxlor-YYYYMMDD.sql

Also backup your old from the froxlor/lib/ folder. Additionally, if you have uploaded custom header logos, you need to copy them over too:

mkdir -p /tmp/froxlor-backup/
cp /var/www/html/froxlor/lib/ /tmp/froxlor-backup/
cp /var/www/html/froxlor/img/* /tmp/froxlor-backup/

2.1 Remove froxlor

As froxlor is mainly a web-ui, all you need to remove are the files within /var/www/html/froxlor. If you have installed froxlor via apt-package, you should of course use apt to uninstall the package.

2.2 Remove database

To also remove the database in which froxlor stores its data, you can do so using mysql directly (e.g. DROP DATABASE) or any tool like phpmyadmin to remove the database.

The default name of the database is froxlor but depending on your installation and what you've specified, it might differ. You can find the database information in the lib/ file if you're unsure.

2.3 Remove customer data

By default, all customer-related data (except for databases) is stored within the directory /var/customers/. If you've adjusted this setting, your base-directory for customer-data might be different.

2.4 Remove services configuration

Froxlor installs a cronjob for its regular tasks, the default filename is /etc/cron.d/froxlor. You can safely delete this file and restart your cron-daemon.

To reset the configurations of the other system services (i.e. mail-services, ftpd, webserver) you can either manually check against any usage of the froxlor mysql-database or, to be sure, re-install the service with fresh/default configurations. In case of the webserver virtual-host configurations, it is safe to remove files with the pattern *_froxlor_* in the corresponding directory, e.g. /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ (depending on your settings).
