removing virtuemart crashed Joomla 3.10.11

Post by becyn1 » Sat Jan 21, 2023 7:02 pm

Perhaps i went about this in the wrong way , but there didn't seem to be any other way such as a "uninstall" button.
I deleted the component files.
This resulted in the site crashing with an error notice:

.../administrator/components/com_virtuemart/helpers/config.php ( include_path=".:"

When I restored com_virtuemart and com_virtuemart_allinone in the administrator folder as well the com_virtuemart folder in the site components folder, all was well again.

How do remove virtuemart without killing the site?

I would appreciate if someone could explain how a component that is not called anywhere can crash a site?
i don't get it!

Uninstall the Extension in Extension Manager.
