Remove/Uninstall Softaculous from WHM/CPanel Server

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. 1.- Login to your server as root through ssh
  2. 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. 3.- That should be it and Softaculous should be neatly uninstalled from your server now.
